Texas school districts seek to overturn federal Adequate Yearly Progress ratings

Pretty big news.  "A coalition of more than 80 Texas school districts is seeking to overturn all federal accountability ratings issued since the program started in 2003.

The school districts filed a legal case against the Texas Education Agency on Thursday, challenging the Adequate Yearly Progress ratings issued under the No Child Left Behind Act.

If the challenge is successful, the TEA will be required to "withdraw its AYP regulations, wipe the federal ratings slate clean for the past nine years, and start AYP implementation over," the release said."

Let's see what happens.
