Guess Pennsylvania lawmakers didn't read their Inquirer the other day, when the Editorial Board spoke up against delaying the development of "state end-of-course exams that would raise the bar on student achievement." Because KYW radio is reporting the following:
"Under pressure from lawmakers, the Rendell administration has backed off -- for now --on its position to proceed with development of graduation exams for Pennsylvania high school students.
Chuck Ardo is a spokesman for Governor Rendell:
“The secretary of education has written a letter notifying the education committees that the administration had decided to slow down its push for graduation exams as it works towards a compromise with the legislators.”
