The mind. It boggles.

From our paper this morning --

"S Elementary School in R was among 54 elementary schools across Washington to be named a “School of Distinction” by the Center for Educational Excellence last month — a distinction that recognizes schools ranked in the top 5 percent for student performance improvements."

and

"S Elementary was among the area's schools this summer to send letters to parents stating the schools were failing after the state lost its waiver from the federal No Child Left Behind Act. The law requires consistent academic improvement until every student meets educational standards. The inability of any one group of students to meet those benchmarks labels a school, or even a district, as failing."
