WE MADE THE TV NEWS!
Our group uncovered a stunning, troubling finding: APS hid key info not only from the public, but from members of their own board! That's right, APS board members had told folks the 4/5 was being done primarily for two reasons: Academics and Equity.
But APS' own equity department, the CESJ, found that the 4/5 was "not recommended." And APS never told us that, in fact they led us to believe (falsely) that the 4/5 was "equitable." Read the APS document here (pages 11-13 are key), and watch the news by clicking here
APS told us the 4th / 5th option was chosen because it would be good for academics. So a university professor researched for us whether or not the 4/5 would indeed be a positive for our children's academics. In short, she concludes,
"Education specialists have been researching this question for more than thirty years. They basically agree that every time students switch schools, the transition negatively affects academic outcomes and students experience achievement loss."
