The New Orleans Imperative Rebroadcast – October 27, 2014

On Tuesday October 21, 2014 the Louisiana Department of Education released the 2013-2014 School Performance Scores (SPS) more than six months after public school students took the state’s mandated standardized tests. With that parents across Louisiana enrolled their children in schools this year not knowing if their child’s school passed or failed last school year or if that school SPS score dropped last school year. Also once again Louisiana the scores for the Recovery School District schools were dismal.Noted researcher and blogger Michael Deshotels joined us to give an analysis of the SPS. Mr. Deshotels discussed the importance of the “cut scores” in determining academic success and the distortion of the high school scores.

Also on today’s program, educational activists Lee Barrios shared with us the fundamental flaws of high stakes testing.
