Congratulations CPS Graduates!

  • Illinois School Supt. Randy Dunn on Wednesday recommended canceling most--but not all--of the state's contract with testing giant Harcourt Assessment after the company failed to deliver high-stakes tests on time to schools.

    The problems led nearly 200 districts to delay testing 3rd through 8th graders this spring and ignited a furor in Springfield, where lawmakers lambasted Harcourt and the Illinois State Board of Education, which oversees state testing.

    Legislators questioned everything from whether the results would be valid to why a lobbyist connected to Gov. Rod Blagojevich was involved in helping Harcourt win the $45 million contract in 2004.

According to sources of ours, as a result of this debacle, every single CPS student will be promoted this term. That's right, Social Promotions are back with a vengence. Not only that, but since everyone passes, there WON'T be any summer school this year! At least that's what teacher friends of ours are saying is the current rumor sweeping the halls of CPS land.

You are kidding right? Day off groups? In cars? A lot of the school bunnies I see will barely fit into squads with their huge.....assets.

But maybe the Tahoe's?

ah yes, but you fail to realize the attorney for the city also has only a 6th grade education. But that attorney does have a chinaman.
