Scholastic Aptitude Test scores of high school seniors fell to a record low this year in the verbal section. The scores for the mathematics section also slipped. Maryland students' average scores slipped as well.
Do you think that the SAT is a fair measure of a student's likely performance in college, or not? Do you think the declining scores reflect on the quality of schooling, or not?
