    Professor Celia Oyler at Columbia Teachers College sent this along to various list serves.

    What grade did your school get? How valid and reliable are these grades? Given the fact that these grades are being tied to very high stakes outcomes (bonus pay and school closings), it is essential that the public be educated about the construction of the grading formula.
