Poor Texas

Over at the AFT Blog, Michele gets on the wrong side of the USDE's decision to deny the AYP modifications Texas had requested -- on the grounds that it isn't fair to the state: "Why shouldn't Texas or any other state get the same deal that another state got from ED?" asks Michele. "I mean, shouldn't there be ONE standard for setting the minimum subgroup size, using confidence intervals, etc.?" Yes, Michele, but it probably shouldn't be the lowest common denominator. Background story here. How Wisconsin's doing it here.

My post wasn't about the specifics of Texas' request--it was about the inconsisten way USED has given out waivers and approved state accountability plans.
