Never compare one student's test score to another's. Always measure a child's progress against her past performance. There will always be a better reader, mathematician, or baseball player. Our goal is to help each student become as special as she can be as an individual
not to be more special than the kid sitting next to her.

Well, good for them, God love them. That's not an equal playing field.
