Countdown’s over: High-school WASL, Day 1, is here


When we interviewed Chief Sealth High School principal John Boyd two weeks ago, that sign and others were displayed prominently around campus, and there was even a countdown clock on the Sealth home page. Now, for CSHS and West Seattle HS and other high schools, the countdown’s over and the big test is here – reading/writing this week, math/science in April. The testing window for lower grades starts in mid-April.

    Pretty rough to have a big test the first school morning of Daylight Savings Time … I know I had a hard time getting going this morning!

    So much hype for a stupid test. Get rid of the WASL already.

    I’m confused; are you stupid if you pass a “stupid test” or fail it? This may be why I don’t get golf too. ;)

    Go to my blog for one parent’s comments about the WASL…just a rant, but really, it is sucking the life out of students and educators. Please, leave your own comments there as well.

Sorry, comment time is over.
