Minneapolis is 5th in the nation in school ratings. Of course, that's 5th worse for graduation rates, right behind New York City, Washington, DC, Baltimore and Indianapolis. See what can happen when you strive to do your very best?

I do like the MMR aspect of ratings more than I did the NLCB AYP unidimensional ones. However, I fear that MMR is mostly masking problems. Some schools in Northfield that were going to be sanctioned under NCLB are getting worse, not better, now that the stigma of corrective actions has been removed. I want to say to Dr. Cassellius that her role is to hold schools accountable, not pander to teacher unions.
