MW actually said she used 117 models of SATA tests, then changed that number to 183 when reporting her findings to CNN. Either she can't count, has a bad memory or flat out lied to inflate her numbers.
These accusations are coming from a "Learning Specialist", she is in no way qualified to reach an analysis because she isn't a psycologist. The independent study was conducted by 3 well qualified EXPERTS and they all came to the same conclussion. So you're gonna believe a tutor over 3 professers?
I haven't seen this reported anywhere.
A learning specialist that has worked at unc for many years and is still employed there and she did have the help of a psychologist, remember the one unc just fired?
The independent study was a farce, they weren't given all the facts and data, hell unc's vice chancellor, Jim Dean, reiterated that yesterday which I sourced a page or two back.
As far as your last question, do I believe a tutor employed by unc that worked with these kids on a daily basis, helped them read, helped them write, and helped them learn over someone looking at a test score? Yes!
