Good News For Schools In East

By: Christine Kennedy
By: Christine Kennedy

Schools districts in the east are getting some promising news when it comes to end of grade testing. The Adequate Yearly Progress or A.Y.P preliminary results are in.

Beaufort County Schools are especially pleased by the test.

They say last year 4 out of 13 schools meet the A.Y.P requirements.

This year seven schools made the grade.

Although this is the first year students in third and eighth grades could re-take the test if they did not pass it the first time.

Which is a reason why the state says it will not compare last year's score to this year's.

The final numbers will be released on August 6th.

    bush is not a liberal, first of all. no child left behind and other similar acts are good starting points for us to work from. i agree that some teachers are remarkable and skilled and i agree families should work to motivate their children. however, the school system needs structure in order to properly function and these acts need to be further worked on to improve the situation. it will never be ideal and there will always be "amanda's" that think a rich man will marry them based only on looks and lack of ambition. we need to actively participate in order to improve this, not sit back and let the school system rot.

    As a former educator, schools place too much credibility on testing. The goal of education is not that you can pass a test, but you can apply what you are taught. Anyone can guess! Anyone can be programmed, but after the test, "How much do they really know?" I was blessed to be taught.

    Yeah, CCC... liberals came up with No Child Left Behind - liberals like Bush. "Amanda's" comment is obviously a joke - the spelling gets progressively worse as it goes on without punctuation. Our school systems aren't failing; there are some good teachers and administrators in our schools who work with little resources at times. There are problems that need to fixed, but it is unrealistic for people to expect teachers to turn around grades of kids who never come to school or who could care less about their grades in the first place. Parents and families are just as responsible if not more so for a child's education as teachers are. When are they going to be held accountable for their kids' low grades?

    Once again, you can thank groups such as liberals, naacp, sciu, etc.... for the joke they call EOG testing. And I won't place the true reason for this up here because WITN will not post it; too controversial.

    You don't have to wait til August 6th. You can visit your school web site and they should tell you where to go to find out the scores. Several Martin County Schools have already been listed.

    all this report shows it that the teachers/school system is now better at teaching the test's materials. as can obviously be seen by Amanda's comment, the school system is failing in MANY other ways. EOG's and AYP results do not show the necessary changes that have yet to be made.
