John, who created the short film, Advance - sent this to his principal:
The faculty votes DEFAULT (growth).MOSL Tov, John.
We know it's no fault of your own, but this choice between the lesser of evils has been a needlessly convoluted process. This pseudo choice, between Pepsi or Coke, attempts, but fails, to create the illusion of freedom, of empowerment. Advance will fail because of its hopeless departure from sound construction and its underlying faulty premise; that test scores can measure true student achievement and quality teaching.
Speaking for the faculty,
