Official: Tests, not schools, are failing

“Over 70 percent of schools and 65 percent of districts failed to make (Adequate Yearly Progress) in 2012. This is ample evidence that the accountability system is broken, not that the vast majority of schools in New Hampshire are failing,” said Education Commissioner Virginia Barry. Barry made her remark in releasing the 2012 report on Adequate Yearly Progress. Based on student test scores, it judges whether schools and districts have reached benchmarks under the federal No Child Left Behind law.
