Totally off-topic, but probably of interest:

The question seems benign enough, and typical of the sorts of questions American 17-year-olds have to answer on ACTs or maybe AP exams, until you realize that the readings, the questions, and the answers were all in English. How many American 17-year-olds could handle passages from a serious modern novel in Spanish or German, read questions given only in Spanish or German, and then compose quality answers?

The novel, by the way, has a free preview on Amazon. You can check the level of the language, it is totally adult writing.

And this test is taken by *every* student seeking to graduate in France. This is how it is done. Serious education can and will prepare students for serious tests. And serious tests are part of the process of serious education.

To 2:22PM ~~ And the entire process is based upon serios, committed educators who truly do put the students first!

The results are typical in other countries throughout Europe & even Asia. We've grown lazy, complacent.

Wow. Meet your new Assistant Superintendent:

So Graupman's first big decision is to hire a convicted criminal who was essentially walked out of her job in Warsaw. She's been hiding in Florida waiting for someone to give her another shot. Who else but Greece would do this?

Mind-boggling....

To 10:44PM ~~ I don't think we can blame Graupman, since Babs is still Supt. until the end of June. Our BOE hires based upon the Supt's desires. We can blame those 10.

To 1:07 am. Babs was not part of this process. This was 100% Graupman's hire.

Best of luck in your future endeavors. Said no one in the town of Greece.

SCATS said...

To 5:56AM ~~ I'm not sure that matters. Officially, Babs is STILL Supt. which makes her "responsible" ... in theory.

Responsible? Yeah, for nothing but b.s.

Haven't seen announcement of Graupman hire as Superintendent. Where was this?
