In a Journal article today
, it states "The state is about to revamp mandatory testing for high school students" for the purpose of helping students "map out their high school education."
It went on to say...
"Deputy Education Secretary Catherine Cross Maple said the Education Department is asking the Legislature for $3 million to revamp the state's high school assessment system."
This effort is going to lead to more mandatory testing for high school students. Does anybody know what company is contracted for this testing? Neil Bush's (the president's brother's) company Ignite! Software
has benefited in the past by selling tutorial software for the tests that are required by No Child Left Behind. Here's a recent article
from The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), which also calls on The Dept. of Education for an investigation.
I'd like to know what company or companies are being contracted in the state so that this can be brought up in the dialogue concerning that particular funding.
