The proof's in the pudding! Public schools are successful and do produce excellent scholars.

While these 12 people can certainly feel proud of the work they did to get those test scores, I hardly think we can give an overall pass to public schools in Evanston based upon 12 test scores.

Imagine if the debate were about what kids actually learned instead of simply how well they test? Some pretty bright kids don't test well at all ...
