Jason Downer joined a discussion about the State of Nevada yesterday that explored why schools kept their stars and what makes a five star school. This interview was through KNPR and is available online.
Nevada just released this year’s ranking for the best performing schools, where the best earn five stars and the lowest get just one star. Some people have noticed that some five star schools where performance had declined were allowed to keep their stars despite not meeting the standards for a top performing school. A panel of guests, including CASTL’s Jason Downer, discussed this and what makes a five star school.
