I bet a lot of the questions had to do with the county's new Common Core curriculum and it's evil twin sister the PARCC exam. Many high school parents are extremely upset that their children are missing AP classes and exams and material and tests in core subjects to take a test that has no bearing on their graduation or grade. The parents are starting to catch onto the nuances of the testing culture that the county has adopted. There was a reason that the Administrators took so much time talking. There was a reason that the questions were carefully selected. There was a reason that BOE members dropped in. Yes, it's NICE that they would have a meeting with the parents....but they really don't want to hear what the parents have to say and they don't want to have to answer any questions that undermine their assumed authority. It's all smoke and mirrors from the BOE up to the MSDE and everything in between.
