This just confirms … the ineptitude of the state Department of Education to give more attention to the cycle 1 scores (first released scores) than to the cycle 2 scores (second released scores) when the cycle two scores are, in fact, the correct ones. I think there are a lot of people in education who work very hard … It borders on being libelous that the state prints the test scores … knowing that they are going to change.
