Re: “A Second Pass at the AzMERIT Scores

Charter schools all over the country have statistically proven the theory that income level is tied to academic capacity is WRONG. Your article yesterday was absurd, your article today expanded on the absurdity. Correlation does not equate to causation.

Nogales, as an example, was accused of a cheating scandal, for which you only have dropping test scores as evidence. What if they were teaching precisely to the old test format? The cross the board drop indicates the cutoff is higher. The size of the drop indicates that all districts were teaching to the test. The smaller drop in some districts, relative to others, could easily be explained by those schools already exceeding the old standard by so much (for some students) that they were less affected by these two factors.

Standardized testing is stupid. Looking at standardized testing as a litmus test that your theories about income inequality have been confirmed is about the only thing more stupid. I am unsubscribing from this newsletter because the value it provides isn't worth the irritation and migraine I get from trying to reach your absurd conclusions using your unsupportable arguments.

Re: “Best Restaurant for Gluten-Free Pizza about gluten free pizza for those with Celiac who have never liked thin crust pizza? inexpensive gluten free pizza joint for those who have to be gluten free and aren't choosing to go granola on all of the rest of their diet? I am so tired of places that offer gluten free foods also getting great reviews for their "organic" offerings. I want pizza, not a salad. I want sausage and pepperoni and I am not willing to pay double or triple because the cow or pig ate grass instead of feed grain. Let me find that gluten free restaurant PLEASE!!
