On Tuesday night the BOE Curriculum subcommittee met to discuss the CMT scores for grades 3-5. The subcommittee chairman, Chuck Scalese, had examined the CMT scores over the last several weeks and decided that they were very bad. I could have saved him some time since I had already looked at those numbers and decided the same thing months ago. But a lot of folks don't believe it until they look for themselves. Better late than never to the party I always say.
The rest of the BOE in attendance was also appalled by the disaster that are the CMT scores and vigorously pointed this out to the audience (that would be me) and the administrators present. I'll have more on this meeting this weekend. For now, enjoy the video. I broke the meeting up into 3 segments of approximately 40 minutes each.
