The temptation to write one’s own obituary is universal. But very few of us actually get the chance to do it – and at taxpayer expense, too.
Georgia’s political elite report receiving a manila envelope postmarked July 1 – prior to the release of the CRCT report — from Beverly Hall, written on Atlanta Public Schools stationery.
It was attached to an 11-page, glossy account of her years as Atlanta school chief, compiled by the APS communications department. Click here to see it.
From the cover letter:
“There are dark clouds and some storms surround us, but I am convinced that those matters will be dealt with appropriately.
“You can take pride in the fact that on the preliminary results of the 2011 CRCT, APS showed progress in 4/5 core subject areas; Mathematics, Reading, English/Language Arts and Social Studies. Science remained the same as in 2010.
Overall, the growth from 2000-2011 on these more rigorous assessments, given under the strictest security possible are significant.”
