Just a coincidence? That's absurd.
It's a system that causes this pattern to repeat.
THIS chart shows what the follow-the-schedule method wants.
NOT what school board members want.
NOT what superintendents want.
• Any result above zero is proficient; below is not proficient. • There is a 99% chance that results will remain the same in coming years, which is to say, between the Upper and Lower Control Limits (the gray lines).
Students would perform better the more years in school IF the follow-the-schedule method wanted that.
But that's not what it "wants"...and it's not a coincidence this pattern repeats (repeatedly).
The system (the follow-the-schedule method) "wants" schools to perform poorer, relative to grade level, the more years students spend in public school.
• Any result above zero is proficient; below is not proficient.
