Local school superintendent weighs in on the current academic accountability system

KOSA -- Public schools across Texas have gotten preliminary “A” to “F” grades under a still-being-overhauled academic accountability system.

But education groups say the incomplete results already show the new scale stigmatizes classrooms in poor and heavily minority areas.

“We do not have “F” students, teachers, campuses, administrators, district or community. What we do have is a community school district that is dedicated to doing what is right for kids on a daily basis, and we will continue to do that in the future! – Chris Wigington, Big Spring ISD Superintendent.
