Re: [seul-edu] [OT] beacon under fire

As I look this over, I find I am missing out on the notion of the the
"required high-stakes standardized tests" as it is applied.   

I understand there is a different approach in NY as opposed to
Caliornia. to testing, but, when they say "Standardized Tests", do they
refer to a proscibed litany of subject matter to be accomplished in a
lock-step schedule, or is it just "overall knowledge of the subject
material" that is being evaluated?
