Bob Wise: Why a new testing baseline is good for W.Va.

For years, many states, including ours, relied on inadequate expectations — or standards — to measure academic performance. This was the equivalent of lowering the high school basketball hoop to eight feet when every game requires 10. That meant our kids weren’t getting the real-world skills they needed to be successful — and we had no way to know because we were using out-of-date tests. Many students didn’t make it to college, and those who did would often find they were ill-equipped for the rigor of the coursework.
