STAAR testing this week ... and 'a new way of doing school'

With STAAR testing underway this week, Commerce Independent School District superintendent Blake Cooper says the state legislature made progress in reducing the number of standardized tests for secondary students from 15 per year to five, and he hopes similar progress will be made for elementary-age children in the next legislative session.  And Blake says the Commerce ISD is now part of the Texas High Performing Schools Consortium, which is "seeking a new way of doing school."
