  • The SBAC needs to remember a couple things:
    1) It starts at home
    2) They need to promote students striving to progress in their educational goals, not regress
    3) Stop blaming the schools and it’s staff
    4) Just because the environment changes, (the variable), doesn’t always mean the student, (the constant), can/wants to.
