A-F grades nudge Winston Brooks towards reform

To say the least, we at the Rio Grande Foundation have had our differences with APS Superintendent Winston Brooks. However, I was heartened to see this story from KOB TV Channel 4 in which Brooks discusses the A-F school grading model that Gov. Martinez pushed through the Legislature and how it is pushing him to reform APS.

In the past, Brooks has seemingly denied that APS needs significant reforms. His recent statements, while not specific, would appear to be a major step in the right direction. If so, I’m encouraged that the A-F grading (the first part of the Florida-model to be implemented) is having a positive impact.

More is to be done, but it is good that Mr. Brooks is not professing to be “ecstatic” with “average” anymore.

  1. What changes has Brooks introduced since he joined APS?

    Can any one name anything, any steps towards progress, change or reform?

    NM continues to lead the Bottom of the States and few legislators in SF care.
