State Superintendent Supports Rhee Account
At the Struggle, we are proud of providing our readers the freshest news possible. To enrich our discussion of the cheating investigation, here is what I received a couple of minutes ago from D.C. State Superintendent of Education Kerri Briggs: "With respect to 2008 analysis, the new administration at OSSE, along with DCPS, reviewed the methodology used and the data presented, and determined that insufficient guidance around interpretation and calculation created a confusing picture. Over the course of 6 months, OSSE had provided three different lists of schools. There was little information about the parameters used to develop those lists. Further, there weren't sufficient policies in place to help interpret the analysis that was available, or to guide use of those analyses. Given these circumstances and where we were with respect to the upcoming 2009 DC-CAS administration, DCPS was advised that no further actions were required around the 2008 analysis. OSSE determined it was time to focus on the 2009 DC-CAS administration."
