Metuchen Superintendent Vincent Caputo presents fifth grader Edward Kalegi with a certificate recognizing his top scaled score of 300 in mathematics on the 2013 administration of NJASK.  Edward was among 58 students honored at the October 29th board of education meeting.

The Board of Education is making a commitment to celebrating the perfect scores of students on NJASK tests. Do you think this is a positive way to acknowledge the top scorers? Or does it pull greater attention to the idea that teachers are forced to teach too much to the test? Will this change with Common Core tests that will be taking over the NJASK in the next few years? What do you think? MM would love to hear your views, especially if you are an educator or administrator, here in Metuchen or in New Jersey.

I think it's wonderful that Superintendent Caputo recognizes and rewards excellence in the Metuchen Schools--academic excellence, athletic excellence, musical talent, noteworthy community service projects, etc. In his Showcase of Success before each BOE meeting, he also recognizes the achievements of his teachers, administrators and staff.
