Will Summer School at Newport Schools Improve Student Performance?

In the past has summer school improved Newport student performance? How much will summer school cost Newport taxpayers? If summer school has not shown to improve student performance why continue the program? Will testing be done at the beginning and end of summer school to evaluate program effectiveness? If the program is not effective will Newport terminate said program? I can guarantee one thing Newport Teachers will have more taxpayer dollars in their pocketbooks at the completion of the summer school program.

In a prior post I revealed how summer school unless implemented correctly will not improve student performance. I suggest Newport schools test students at the beginning and at the end of the summer school program if no student performance has been achieved than the teachers are not paid and Newport taxpayer dollars will not have been wasted. If the schools are so confident that this summer school program is so effective they will have no problem accepting this challenge, if not don't waste Newport Taxpayers hard earned dollars.

Spelling and grammar errors as well as typos are left as an exercise for my readers.

A story about the Newport Summer School program appears in the Eagle Times.
