It was this morning. I was looking over the school ranking for NB based on standardized tests. That was when I noticed something odd.

There was no private school in the rankings. That's surely odd.

The people who fund the Atlantic Institute of Market Studies are probably much the same people who send their own children to private schools. If standardized testing and ranking are good, and if they produce results with public competition, why aren't the rich demanding standardized testing for their kids?

The only standardized test they have is an entrance exam. And that's designed to keep out kids whose learning problems could drag down the school average.

Gee! You'ld think the private schools themselves would be in the lead demanding they be included in statndardized testing .....if they really thought it were worth a damn.
