Is State Failing Our Public Schools?
Easton High School, with a 64.9% rating, would be considered 0-10, even though it is 10-0. That sanction might inspire people to turn things around.
For you Easton fans out there, don't worry. I'm the only one I know who has proposed this goofy idea.
But there's another group out there that's trying to improve our failing schools. According to Keystone Crossroads,a coalition of parents, school districts and even the NAACP have banded together to sue the Commonwealth. They demand that the state be compelled to fund a "thorough and efficient" education, which is required by the state Constitution.
Based on the state's own standardized testing, there are five Lehigh Valley high schools that fail to provide a "thorough and efficient" education.
