Getting More From Less


Author Info

  • Dennis Heffley
  • Can Bekaroglu


With nearly 58% of all town expen­ditures in Connecticut going to edu­cation, recent fiscal pressures have forced teachers and administrators to make do with less. But this pres­sure to perform is not new. The push for “assessment” and “accountabil­ity,” and the mandates and penal­ties of “No Child Left Behind,” have left many educators feeling more like beleaguered test tutors than well-trained professionals. Yet despite the pressure and professional doubts, many Connecticut high school dis­tricts seem to be preparing students for the SAT Reasoning Test in a rela­tively efficient way.
