|La Martin la rego en el STAAR|
My, own Alma Mater, Raymond and Tirza Martin High School is at the very bottom of the ladder in regards to the just-released STAAR test scores.
Ol' Tim Gutierrez announced a few minutes ago that in English 1,Writing, the home of Tiger Legends scored an appalling 16 per cent passing rate. The news was not much better in English 1, Reading. On this test, the mighty Tiger freshmen scored an abysmal 27 percent passing rate. It sounds like someone has a lot of work cut out for them; Administrators, teachers, parents and students.
I can't say that I'm very surprised. English is spoken very little at today's MHS. From the time you walk in, the security guards, office personnel, students and even teachers carry a great deal of their conversations in Spanish.
