Eissler and Hochberg on TAKS and STAAR
Great interview by the Texas Tribune with Representatives Eissler and Hochberg.
A notable ending comment by Rep. Hochberg: "We built the concept of this whole accountability system on the concept that the numbers that those tests give us mean something, and we know that the numbers that those tests give us mean almost nothing for kids that are going to consistently score above the pass mark. In fact, we know that those kids are going to pass 98% of the time the next year."
