'The New York Times published a story today about PARCC’s efforts to remove all blogs and tweets that referred to items from their test. Leonie Haimson says the story is incomplete, and she fills in the gaps in her account.  The question for all of us IS “Why don’t they just release those three contested items?” Maybe they are afraid of setting a precedent. It is astounding that a test that has such weighty consequences should be immune from review and discussion. How many hidden Pineapples are there behind the veil of secrecy? ( YES! The tests are still used in many states for teacher evaluation s and school closings)   Could be because PARCC has seen a dramatic decline in usage. The number of states has dropped from 24 to 7. If the trend continues, bye-bye PARCC.'
