Guilty plea in robbery; school testing results

Today's Ithaca Journal reports that one of the three men accused of robbing the Song Tao restaurant in Dryden in last November, Cam B. Quan, has pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary. Two other accomplices, also from Texas, have not yet gone to trial.

In schools news, test scores for elementary and middle school English weren't encouraging for local school districts, with Dryden falling about 10 percent on both the fourth and eighth grade tests while Ithaca varied by school. The state doesn't seem to have posted the actual scores on their web site yet. All I could find was a press release with a link to a PowerPoint presentation which doesn't break anything down for districts beyond the biggest five in the state.
