I can start off by saying I do not understand this opt-out testing for Physical Science that is only for Ballard students. Why? Also, one of our Ballard High science teacher readers, India Carlson, told DeBell at his last community meeting that the test created is extremely difficult (so it would seem that few Ballard kids would pass it anyway).
Other suggested topics:
- language arts
- foreign language
- uneven teaching quality (I found this more apparent in high school than any other level; this was at both Roosevelt and Hale.)
