Several points need to be made about test performance, grades

In response to the recent article and letters about changing student’s grades for test performance, there are several points that need to be brought to light.

The California Standards Test (CST) is an end of course exam that tests students on specific standards. The standards development process brought teachers together to develop consensus on skills and knowledge students should possess. Before adoption in 1998, these standards went through a public comment process which allowed for parents, community members and business individuals to provide important feedback prior to state adoption. 

The California Department of Education holds each school accountable for these test scores. Del Norte Unified School District schools are deemed high- or low-performing solely on CST and exit exam test student performance.

Unchecked flow of illegals will reach saturation point

I wish to thank Mike Misewicz for his June 8 response (“Immigration dispute letter prompts range of emotions”) to my May 29 letter to the editor (“Where is The Triplicate on the immigration issue?”). I am not at all clear  if it was intended as a criticism or instruction. It completely avoided engaging any of the points I made in my letter.

I never stated I thought illegal aliens were not  fine, hard-working people. I went through elementary and high school with many students of Mexican ancestry. Additionally, half of my friends were of  Mexican ancestry. My godfather was Hispanic as were the godparents of  one of our children.The difference between the Hispanic people I’ve referred to and those in my letter were  that the former were  all Americans. They were citizens of the United States and proud  of it. The latter are not.

On behalf of the Del Norte Women’s Golf Association, I’d like to thank the members of the Del Norte High School boys’ golf team and the members of the Del Norte Men’s Golf Association for conducting a golf clinic for participants of the Rally for the Cure Golf Tournament.

They did a great job of introducing the game of golf to women golfers from Del Norte and Curry counties!  There are still spaces available for women golfers for this weekend’s Rally for the Cure. Please call 458-3214 to sign up.

Nationally, it’s time to start looking out for ourselves

Why is it that while our country is in a financial crisis, we give millions to Russia and many other countries to boost their economies while we have untold numbers out of work and every county in this country is facing being broke?

Why is Obama carrying on this legacy when he can, with the stroke of a pen, change this wrong and put the money where it’s needed more — in America?
