Never in my entire education career have I seen an injustice as great as the "F" grade given to Mountain High in Kaysville. The Utah Legislature owes the school an apology and a retraction of the grade.
No school can, or should be, evaluated without consideration of the student body demographics. To do otherwise is to demonstrate total ignorance of appropriate evaluation methods or deliberate moral bankruptcy. My congratulations to Kathleen Chronister, principal, for not being intimidated by a school evaluation system that is neither sensible nor valid. Shame on the Utah Legislature.
