Ron Littlepage completely misunderstands the importance of school grades

I will let his words do the talking for him.

In an article defending Superintendent Vitti,
Littlepage wrote.

Hall and the NAACP
complained about the increase in the number of Duval schools that the state
recently tagged with D’s and F’s.
They conveniently
ignored the fact that those grades are meaningless because the state keeps
changing the rules, making year-to-year comparisons worthless.

Sure they are meaningless unless you are trying to sell
your house and you live in a neighborhood with an F or D school.

Or unless you are a teacher and your VAM score is low
because students at our poorer schools don’t do as well. Not only can you lose
out on school recognition money but you can potentially lose your job.

Sure they are meaningless unless you are a charter
school operator looking for easy pickings. Wait who am I kidding, charter
schools only set up in affluent neighborhoods now.

School grades are so meaningless that superintendent
Vitti warns whoever he can that unless we blow up our neighborhood schools the
state will take them over.



They are not meaningless. they are clubs used to punish schools, teachers, students and neighborhoods. Unless they are associated with Vitti, then according to Littlepage they are totally meaningless (sic).

Ron Littlepage should keep to writing about the river
and stay away from things he doesn’t know anything about.
