Thank you Mr. Milliken for your coverage of this important matter.

Toby

Matt -

Thanks for the comprehensive report.

Couple of questions:

1) What is the estimated margin of error for the various test scores? My guess is that nearly all of the comparisons with the previous year's results are within the statistical margin of error, meaning that the two are effectively the same.

2) All of the measures compare this year's cohort with last year's -- which is a completely different group of individuals. Is there any reporting of how individual students are progressing year-over-year?

Toby,

You last question was always one of my big complaint when I was teaching for DPS. There is no effort made to compare the same students year to year.

In Chapel Hill-Carrboro, we have looked at the same students from year to year to see how much they have grown but staff had to do the calculations. The state does not provide this type of growth data though there is a state-defined method to calculate growth and an expected level of growth.

Kudos to Dr. Diane Villwock and her staff who generated the report.

The first officers were Duncan F. Curry, president, William R. Wheaton, vice-president, and William H. Tucker, secretary-treasurer.It is likely that Cartwright picked some of his twenty rules based upon his previous experience in town ball play in Manhattan. The original rules of play at the vacant lot in Manhattan were not documented so it cannot be said which rules were Cartwright's own invention.

The grade 3-8 reading scores are worth highlighting. The composite proficiency mark was 55.8 percent, as noted above. More than four-fifths of white and Asian students passed the tests, and about two-thirds of multiracial students did.

There were small fluctuations in the academic achievement gap between white students and black and Hispanic students. Suffice to say that most of the gaps exceed 25 percentage points, and that none those gaps closed by more than 1 point.

It will be interesting to see whether or not the incremental progress unveiled Wednesday translates into better or worse performance under No Child Left Behind than last year, when just 14 schools (28 percent of the total) met the standard.

Also, the test scores should be finalized by the state Board of Education next month. That action should also crystallize the labels that the state has used for years in its ABCs program.

Instead of calling the people back home, set up a way that you can communicate with them by using the internet. You can use Yahoo messenger or set up a face book page.

All of this anxiety, and when you think of it, all of this shame as well as the shame of ambition -all of this gets packed into this allusion to Virgil that Milton brings to this very disturbing moment in Lycidas.
