TASB: A‒F Ratings Don’t Provide Meaningful Insight

Following the Texas Education Agency’s first release of A‒F accountability ratings for school districts, TASB stated that these new ratings will shed little light on actual performance. “As we have seen in past years, accountability labels are generally better at tracking economically disadvantaged students than they are at measuring what our students are learning,” the statement reads. It concludes that the new rating system won’t contribute to solving the problems of low-performing districts and won’t provide much new information to districts or the community.
