Newspaper Ads about KS Student Achievement Misleading

KPI-ad-2012-03Perhaps you've seen those newspaper ads that imply Kansas students aren't doing so well when it comes to reading and arithmetic on statewide tests. It's worth pointing out that these ARE advertisements - not actual news stories. Regardless, the ads have been getting under the skin of Guest Commentator Tony Moss.

Guest Commentator Tony Moss is a former educator and social worker. He's currently a consultant for the Kansas Department of Education, but he spoke to us today as a private citizen - and not on behalf of the education department.
