Students pass state test, principal apologizes to students
He's sorry that he spent thousands of tax dollars on test materials, practice tests, postage and costs for test administration.
Sorry that his teachers spent less time teaching American history because most of the social studies test questions are about foreign countries.
Sorry that he didn't suspend a student for assaulting another because that student would have missed valuable test days.
Sorry he didn't strictly enforce attendance because all absences count against the school on the State Report Card.
He's sorry for pulling children away from art, music and gym, classes they love, so they could And more: Students pass state test, but at what cost to their education?
