Aerial Inquiry in Texas

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

A spirited debate over testing and accountability has been going on in Texas. The Texas Tribune ran the above photograph by Marjorie Kamys Cotera yesterday of the Texas Association of Business posing a rather important question via crop duster.

For those with eyesight as poor as mine, the message asks “Is 37 percent correct on Algebra too hard?” I believe it is, errr, a reference to cut scores…

    Yes it is – we are so proud that the we had a cumulative passing rate of 84.7% on the Algebra test!! Rockin it here in Texas. But Jay Green, great defender of the status quo in education standards, this is better than what again?

      I’ve always said it’s an honor to be mistaken for Jay Greene. But is it an honor to be mistaken for Jay Green? Has Jay Greene ever been mistaken for Jay Green?

      Come to think of it – Matt, have you ever seen Jay Greene and Jay Green in the same place at the same time? I know I haven’t. Awful peculiar. You don’t suppose . . .

    Nice try, but you’re not fooling anyone, Jay. Or should I say . . . “Jay”?
