If you answered B, congratulations. You scored better than state Superintendent Janet Barresi.
According to the Tulsa World, Barresi told the Republican Womens Club of Tulsa County on Feb. 12 that University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University research scientists who authored the aforementioned report had debunked their own study.
That apparently came as news to the reports authors, who had
characterized the state Education Departments contentious grading
system as neither clear, nor comparable.
When asked by the Tulsa World, a
department spokeswoman said Barresis comments resulted from a
misunderstanding between her and an assistant state superintendent who
has spoken with a researcher. The studys senior project coordinator,
Patrick Forsyth, told the World that he had no clue where Barresi got her information.
I just think that there isnt anyone at the state department who can really understand the scope of the critique, he said.
And that, ladies and germs, is how a scientist calls someone stupid.
Anyone at the state Education Department have a local burn treatment center on speed dial?
