Follow up from “Exemplary schools” post September 5, 2007

Posted by Jeff in Education, Parenting.

This morning over breakfast, I was still thinking about my post from last night on the concept of “exemplary” meaning that 1 in 10 students cannot make 60% on a basic skills test for their grade level.

At breakfast, I asked Ruth a paraphrase of the question that I pulled from the TEA’s website for 3rd grade math:  Which of the following has the most sides – circle, square, triangle, or octagon?  Ruth said, “Octagon.  It has 8 sides, like a stop sign.  Ask me a harder one.”

Keep in mind that she’s on her second week of kindergarten, not finishing her 3rd grade year.
