We devote our entire editorial column today to a story bigger than the actual WASL results released today. While the reading and writing scores look good, a legislature-ordered review of what went wrong with the WASL math standards is a devastating portrayal of incompetence by OSPI. If this was a different culture, Terry Bergeson would fall on her sword.
