I am not exactly sure who Jeanne Allen is, but I wonder, has she ever been in
a classroom teaching to 25 different levels at the same time? All students
are required to take the tests in Vermont, not sure about other states, so
the test scores of the school may seem slightly tainted. I am not advocating
cheating in any way, but I do feel that test scores DO need to be put back in
there place, which is as one predictor, not as an end-all evaluator.
