Weighing In ...
A little poem

Whether large or small, east or west, locals are joining in with the rest. From certs to support staff, many are walking –

This is not an isolated incident

Is anyone keeping count of juniors in Seattle who have opted out of this year’s SBAC? At this point, it is way more than 1,000. The Seattle School District says they are only monitoring four schools and that complete numbers won’t be available until mid-June and the Seattle Times reported this week that 100 percent of Nathan Hale students opted out; Ballard and Ingraham juniors opted out at right around 95 percent; Ingraham students were at 80 percent while both Roosevelt and Franklin reporters numbers that were quite high.

It's hard to stop the tide

Check out the April 28 blog post in one of Seattle's most read education blogs. It talks about State School Superintendent Randy Dorn getting desperate. Students in Seattle are opting out of taking the SBAC in droves. One tactic is to blame WEA. The post says that is both insulting to educators and parents.

Compressed folder

Here are the files ... I tried e-mailing but Comcast told me it was too big.

As you probably know, just right click the folders to unzip after you've downloaded them. I'd already sized the images to 8x10 format for the wall display -- I'm not sure who is doing that part -- so these are not quite 1x1.5 ... more like 1.15 x 1.5. Let me know if that's a problem, or if you have trouble getting these files to work.
