So TEA took it’s fingers out of its ears but now I suspect it will hold it’s breath until it turns blue.
Last week, agency officials said they did not ask Caveon for the names of the additional schools because they did not consider them worthy of investigation. That’s because Caveon used a different type of analysis to identify the additional schools.”I think that over the weekend, people thought about the situation and just realized we need the complete list,” said Debbie Graves Ratcliffe, a TEA spokeswoman.
“And whether we take further action – we’ll have to decide once we see that list.”
“People thought about the situation…” People who? People at the TEA who realized that they screwed up again because they obviously didn’t think before the weekend? People who read the paper and couldn’t believe that TEA didn’t think about the situation it would cause by not investigating the scores?
And what situation? The fact that there is more evidence of cheating or the fact that it was plastered all over the Dallas Morning News? Or the situation the press and it’s readers see where officials in the TEA refuses to take action or give a reasonable explanation for not taking action?
