A California judge rejected a request by students at six low-income high schools to compel the state to step in and ensure they received the same access to classes as students at other schools, writing that attorneys for the students didn’t provide enough evidence to compare their lost learning time to that at other, similar high schools.

Sometimes I feel that the Department of Education is too ambitious, pushing policy after policy. On one hand we are implementing the Common Core, and on the other, before any results could be gathered, we are implementing  STEM. Don't get me wrong, I wish for these policies to turn out good, but taking one step at a time wouldn't hurt!

The downward slope begins in elementary school and worsens as children are passed along through school without actually mastering the necessary skills thanks to safety nets like summer school and grade redemption strategies that allow them to do makeup work in order to pass.
