Lubbock ISD Superintendent Dr. Karen Garza Talks Test Scores and Bond Elections on Lubbock’s First News [AUDIO]
On Wednesday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Lubbock ISD Superintendent joined Chad and Rex in the studio to discuss the district's testing scores and bond election.
Dr. Garza said that testing is much more rigorous today than it was several years ago, so it is "not fair," to compare how the schools performed in years past to how they perform today. She expects that in the first year of the new STAR tests, LISD will probably have lower scores. Dr. Garza also expressed her dislike for the "No Child Left Behind," program and how she would like to see education reformed. She also discussed the bond election, dress codes, and how the budget crunch has affected the district.
Dr. Garza also took calls from KFYO listeners concerning parent's access to CISCO and LISD's decision to buy the old church building next to Lubbock High School and convert it into a parking lot.
