I sure wish that people that were commenting on the Hayden School situation would stop unless you have a student in the district. You have no idea the family dynamics and other life situations that relate to students and test taking abilities. Not everybody is a test taker that will score high. I work in a university setting and see that students that fail on the first or second attempt on a national licensure exam would be EXCELLENT at what they are testing for but just freeze up on the test. Does that stem from not having enough learning days or good enough instructors - NO.
