Schools blast state for PSSA changes

As if there wasn’t enough controversy surrounding these tests. Take a look at this article in today’s Courier Times.

There's no telling who the "educators" were who led PDE to think this was a better testing schedule. Chances are it was DRL (Data Recognition Corporation), who creates the PSSAs each year and couldn't start work until the new contract was agreed to. At any rate, it's an example among many if executive decisions being made without ever consulting the people who will have to carry out the decision. You'd think school district administrators would have been among the first people polled before the decision was made.
