With a rating of a 3 in the Garfield county Grand Valley district 16, and a rating of 5 in the Roaring Forks district, G.S. District no. Re-2's rating is a 5, I have to wonder if the tax money for the Garfield County schools stays up valley where there is more affluent families. It is a shame that Parachutes new middle school boasts the most updated equipment for science that is very seldom if ever implemented, minimal electives that do not include art, band but not orchestra, and shop. Physical Ed. is only available one semester per year. Is all of our tax dollars going to unnecessary administration and our students class time spent studying for testing? I feel our tax dollars are misspent and needs to be spent directly on our children's learning and the essential employees should be given a long overdue raise.

Parents nationwide are opting out of state testing. Hoping to send a message to lawmakers, they are refusing to allow their children to take standardized tests.
Learn about whether or not public school students are prepared to enter into the "real world" upon graduation, and how schools are changing their curriculum to meet changing economic needs.
The Obama Administration recently warned states that refusing enrollment to students based on citizenship or immigration status violates federal law.
