We already have a great school in Lely. Anyone bashing the C 'grade' should be aware of the grading system and what is required to improve to the next level. It has nothing to do with the mid-upper 75% of the school. They could all be straight A students and still not improve the state-issued grade level. It is up to the bottom 25% to improve their standardized test scores. These are NOT dumb kids. Most of them are new to America, yet have to take this test in English one year and one day after hitting our soil. Yes they should learn English, but take anyone on the MIA board or anyone on this blog and make them take a high school standardized test in a foreign language and see how well they do. Why not use the time and efforts and lobby for new state laws and guidelines in order to help all the kids?
