Update on Bonus Points Issue

Barbara Leader of the Monroe News Star has written an excellent article on the bonus points issue. There are many examples around the state where schools are not receiving the points they were promised by the DOE.

White is quoted as explaining this as a case of poor communication instead of the state changing the rules after the fact.

Scott Richard, Executive Director for the School Boards Association has suggested that school boards may want to send resolutions of protest to BESE.

I am still suggesting that all affected schools protest this matter to their legislators. The legislature mandated the school grading system and they have a responsibility to make sure it is administered fairly.

This is more than poor communication. John White is quoted in this article that you reference. He is flat out lying or he doesn't know how his formula works.
