Graduation Pathways Panel Recommendations
The River Forest Community School Corporation and Board of Trustees oppose the current recommendations for Graduation Pathways. If you have heard about the pathways, you know that the State Board of Education is pushing this concept through without getting much input from schools, parents, or other concerned entities.
If this initiative were enacted today, the state graduation rate would drop by more than 25% and River Forest would move from 80% graduation rate to 47%.
We share concerns with Dr. McCormack (the State Superintendent of Public Education), superintendents, principals and teachers across the state. It is our opinion that the State Board should host public forums across the state – without your help, however, they may vote to approve the current pathways as early as December 6th.
We believe that the current proposals are detrimental and discriminatory towards special education students, second language learners, and students of poverty. Although we support some areas, we believe that some of the benchmarks are detrimental to our student’s economic futures.
