Mark Lineburg, Rex Gearheart, John Iskra and Richard Salmon recently wrote an article about the Virginia legislation that requires public schools to be graded on an A-to-F scale. If interested, the full article can be accessed on a Washington Post blog entry (http://tinyurl.com/l2auvzg).

Lineburg is superintendent of Bristol City Schools (and a former head football coach at Brookville High School); Gearheart is assistant superintendent in Bristol; Iskra is chairman of the math department at Emory and Henry; and Salmon is a nationally noted researcher and authority on education finance from Virginia Tech. The article is the best writing and research I have seen on the topic, and it spurred me to think about the topic of accountability in public schools.
