7. My state

DID tie test scores to teacher evaluations, and were told that we didn't do so in a way that pleased Duncan et al., so our waiver was endangered.

Therefore, test scores will play a much bigger role in our evaluations this year, even though it's a brand-new Common Core aligned test our students, and most of our teachers, have never seen.

We've had glimpses of "samples," and "practices," which are markedly different from the tests our students have been taking.

Your child can graduate if the school is labeled "failing." At least, depending on your state, if your child meets the testing benchmarks.
