Some math scores fall

Yesterday's Ithaca Journal had lots of articles with Dryden connections. An article on declining math test scores in higher grades shows the Dryden and Ithaca schools with a similar pattern of better performance in lower grades, with Dryden being a little more extreme that way.

The County Legislature restored funding to some projects, included the often discussed (in Dryden Town Board meetings, anyway) Recreation Partnership.

The Opinion page included pieces from Democratic Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton on elder care opportunities and from her Republican challenger Jim Rohan on finding ways to encourage those educated at colleges in New York to stay here.

The Journal's editorial invited readers to help them keep track of gas prices.

The Journal also notes the flaccid state of reform in Albany, as the Brennan Center released an update to their early report on dysfunction. I'll have a lot more to say on that when I get a chance to read it.
