  1. You are so awesome! I don’t think I have read a single thing like
    that before. So nice to find somebody with a few unique thoughts on this subject matter.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This site is something that is
    required on the internet, someone with a bit of originality!

  2. This post raises an important issue, thank you for sharing. Have you heard about http://www.WhyProficiencyMatters.com? Another important issue every parent should know about as it will impact their child. Being proficient means a student has demonstrated mastery of a subject (such as reading or math) at a specific level. However, proficiency expectations vary from state-to-state and differ widely from the nationally and internationally recognized National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) proficiency expectations. This discrepancy in expectations is called a “proficiency gap.” States with large proficiency gaps are setting the bar too low, leading parents and teachers to believe students are performing better than they actually are. States must raise their proficiency expectations if they hope to create an education system where every child has the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in the next grade – and most importantly – after high school.
