Now that the abysmal Smarter Balanced scores have come out, the spinning has just begun.
The Common Core soldiers in the state are spinning these results to avoid some of the tough questions that come from this testing scheme.
In the past, New Hampshire under Commissioner Virginia Barry, students took the NECAP. Now they are taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment.
Under the NECAP, New Hampshire students showed relatively high levels of proficiency in the core subjects. Those proficiency levels just DROPPED.
What does this mean for children who took the NECAP and those who recently took the SBA?
Does this mean, as one activist in New Hampshire recently said, the NH Department of Education has been lying to parents in the past?
While they SPIN these results, it’s important to note how none of these bureaucrats take responsibility for any of this.
