Judge blocks release of public school ratings | Failures handling COVID, Dr. Gilbert Berdine – Pratt on Texas 10/27/2023

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: A ridiculous, spurious decision from a Travis Co. Democrat district judge places a temporary injunction on TEA from releasing the public school A to F accountability ratings. The judge, ruling on a lawsuit to stop transparency from about 100 ISDs, says school districts could suffer “irreparable harm” from the release! How?

One charter school leader wrote me:

“You are probably already aware of this, but some judge in Austin blocked TEA from releasing ratings after about 100 ISDs sued.  I think charters should do the opposite and tell the world to ”bring it on” because we don’t fear accountability like the ISDs do.  … But we need to face the facts.  It’s widely understood that the delay is because TEA is trying to tweak ratings to already make schools look better.”
