Do you think the State Board of Education should lower its school accreditation standards to make sure more students succeed?

Response Percent Votes
No. Making standards easier sends the wrong message. We should demand excellence.
57% 321
No. Students will work harder if they are motivated and challenged.
21% 119
Yes. Not all students are capable of reading and doing math at their grade level, so the system sets them up for failure.
12% 71
Yes. The current standards that all students will be grade-level proficient in reading and math by 2014 is unrealistic and could invite further court actions against the school system.
