I continue to watch with great interest how the Garfield school's boycott of the M.A.P. test develops. Today's news seems quite dramatic.
I continue to be a bit baffled as to why this particular test has drawn such ire, but I'm convinced of one thing: this is how meaningful change will happen, with teachers, students, and parents driving reform from the ground up.
Now, can we put AYP requirements on the agenda?
