“Now Offering Farm Policies, Small and Commercial”

RUTLAND — The Rutland Architectural Review Board approved the design of Green Mountain Power ’s planned Energy Innovation Center, an art deco motif that honors the building’s past even as it symbolizes a new chapter in downtown Rutland. “The EIC will be a working example of energy innovation,” GMP President and CEO Mary Powell said. “Through a mix of recycled and new materials and features, we’ll blend the two structures that made up the Eastman Building into a customerfocused space where Vermonters can learn about generation, efficiency, environmental effects of energy decisions, new technologies and new customer programs.” The EIC will be the focal point of GMP renewable energy development, including efforts to make Rutland the solar capital of New England, with the highest reliance on solar per capita of any city in the region. The smaller building, a wood-framed structure, combined with a circa 1925 retail store that has sat empty and has become increasingly dilapidated for a decade, will house GMP employees and staff from Efficiency Vermont and Neighborworks of Western Vermont, classroom/conference space, and public exhibits focused on energy and the environment. While a significant improvement to the largest empty space in downtown Rutland, the project is also a key component of GMP plans to achieve millions of dollars of customer savings by reducing the company’s overall square footage.

Wallingford woman plans to swim English Channel By Lou Varricchio newmarketpress@denpubs.com

Bethany Bosch

RUTLAND — Many of us day dream about accomplishing big goals in life— like sailing around the world, striking it rich with a creative idea, climbing Kilimanjaro, learning to fly, even retiring early and sitting on a beach. However, few of us actually realize these secret reveries. Life, reality, has a way of getting in the way of dreams, but not so for Bethany Bosch of Wallingford. The athletic swimmer has one very big goal on her to do list—that’s to swim across the English Channel in 2014. Bosch grew up in the Rutland area and gained an affinity for water at a young age. Growing up, Bosch was a regular youth participant in the Rutland Recreation Department’s aquatic programs.

She was a member of several Rutland Rec swim teams over the years and that’s where she developed and honed her aquatic skills. According to Bosch’s friend, and Channel swim publicity coordinator, Rob Maguire, the young woman began to seriously pursue becoming an endurance swimmer three years ago. “After college, Bethany returned home to West Rutland, and began her pursuit as an endurance swimmer in 2010,” Maguire said. “Having determined that in order to make her dream of swimming the Channel a reality, Bethany began to build her life around her swimming.” Maguire said Bosch swims, on average, two to three miles a day just to keep in shape and build up her upper body and leg strength. “She also travels as far as an hour and See ENGLISH CHANNEL, page 10

It's that time of year again so the Rutland County Humane Society would like to remind you to license your dog. You'll need to have them up-to-date on their rabies shot so please check with your veterinarian and make an appointment, if necessary. Did you know that Vermont state law requires all cats to have their rabies shots, too? If you're not sure, please check with your vet to make sure your dog and cat are up to date on their shots.

I’m a sweet and gentle older lady who is looking for a quiet home where I can spend my golden years. When I meet new people I softly wag my tail and smile in my own way that says “I think I like you already and would enjoy getting to know you better”. My days of playing a lot are behind me but nice gentle walks would be fun. I should probably lose a few pounds so those walks would be good for me.

This inspection sticker will expire by the last day of April. Call for an appointment!

There’s no room in Vermont grocery carts for a beverage tax. The Vermont beverage tax means paying more for sodas, juice drinks, teas and sports drinks. Some prices could go up by almost 50%. Vermont already pays some of the highest taxes in the country. Montpelier politicians need to cut wasteful spending before they ask us to pay more.

From the Editor

Stop the Vermont beverage tax

I

don’t know about you, but I am getting sick and tired with politicians in Washington and Montpelier picking my pocket to fund a variety of pet programs that should either be pruned or eliminated out right. The latest example of legalized pick-pocketing is the Vermont Legislature’s plan to tax soft-drinks. Of course, in these parts, “revenue enhancing” is always done under the guise that Nanny knows what’s best for us. Well, don’t be fooled by the partisan scare tactics, like the ones we’re seeing relating to the sequister debacle. And anytime the government claims to know what’s good for you, there’s a tax lurking somewhere around the corner. That’s why I am pleased to join the efforts of the “Stop the Vermont Beverage Tax” coalition. This bipartisan group consists of common-sense Vermont citizens and voters which include consumers, grocers, beverage manufacturers, distributors, and a few (just a few) of the last sensible politicians left in the state. The grassroots anti-tax coalition was formed last month in response to the proposal before the Vermont Legislature to place a one cent-per-ounce excise tax on non-alcoholic beverages. Data shows that if it’s approved, the proposed law will raise the prices of many products in Vermonters’ grocery carts by more than 50 percent. And don’t think increases aren’t going to be passed on to you, even if you don’t consume soft drinks. “Every day, I hear politicians urging Vermonters to buy local,” said Ray Bouffard, owner of Georgia Market in Georgia, “but this tax will just send customers across the border or down the street to Costco to buy their beverages.” Please don’t think that only Republicans oppose such erosive state taxes. Highly respected Democrat State Sen. Dick Mazza, chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee and owner of Mazza’s General Store in Colchester, thinks the Vermont Beverage Tax is a dumb idea, too. “We’re working hard in the Senate, and with the governor, to balance the needs of state government with Vermonters ability to pay. This bill will increase the costs of all beverages—not just those with added sugar. It’s not going to address obesity, but it is going to hit Vermonters where it hurts – in our pocketbooks and at our places of business.” In the words of a Rutland-area convenience store owner I happened to be chatting with about this very topic, “This is simply a tax on the back of hardworking Vermonters and business owners like me. You, me—we can’t afford it.” So which products would be taxed if this bill is approved? Here’s the list: Soda, flavored waters, teas, sport drinks, drink powders, and even syrups—yes, even sweet, everso fattening maple syrup—would be subject to the proposed tax. Like the idea so far? According to the coalition, Vermont businesses operating near our three bordering states will be at the greatest disadvantage; residents there can easily cross the stateline to avoid the taxation. And why not? For the same reason many Vermonters shop on the Internet—to avoid paying tax. Sure “buy local”, they may think, but if it’s cheaper elsewhere... Where there’s a will, there’s a way around any tax. “Vermonters can decide what to buy without government help,” according to David Larose, president of the Beverage Association of Vermont. “We should be fighting obesity through education and promotion of healthy diets and exercise. Studies show that taxes don’t make people healthier—smart, educated decisions about diet and exercise do.” Yes, “buy local” when you can and please say “no” to all new taxes on Vermont groceries.

s it a phrase that just sounds good, or is it how we live our lives? For many it’s a life code, deeply rooted in who they are and what their lives are all about. For others it’s a pickup line creating an opportunity to take advantage of those who possess nothing more than hope and faith that they can trust what is being promised. According to recent Rasmussen Surveys, most Americans feel connected to a local church or religious organization. Generally, people feel that they are connected and play a positive role in some organization with 67 percent rating volunteer work more important than politics. Fifty-seven percent would rather be called a good citizen than a patriot, while 86 percent believe individuals make their own success. Americans, a full 88 percent of us, see honesty and good parenting at the top of the list when it comes to successful lives. With statistics like these, one can understand the frustration so many feel today as we watch our elected officials on all fronts continue to let down the people they’ve promised to serve. In those surveys, government and politics are near the bottom of the list. We want to believe when we cast our votes that candidates have our best interest first and foremost, but time and time again, we get left paying the price while they reap the benefits. The sequester that we’ve been told would not happen, the effects of which would be so repugnant that it would force our warring political parties to capitulate and seek a compromise, has now taken place. The president hasn’t led; instead, he has spent more money continuing to campaign against the opposition and predicting doom, gloom and suffering in days ahead. The Republican-led Congress, once in favor of cutting tax loopholes with the effect of raising taxes, has dug in their heels telling us that the sequester spending cuts aren’t really cuts to current spending. And the Senate seems to be missing in action these days. No one is leading. And leading is what they all promised to do when they came looking for our votes. Follow me. Trust me. The simple truth is, their lack of honesty and integrity has produced a mess

that they’re all running away from, failing to accept responsibility for their lack of apDan Alexander propriate Thoughts from action. Behind the Pressline Once again we are peppered with empty promises. I wonder how long we can afford to let these self-centered, egotistical politicians make decisions that will affect the future of our country. Always more concerned with their job security and their legacy, it’s nothing more than a tennis match for them and we, unfortunately, are the ball. They’ve accepted a job and once again they failed to get the job done. Governing is not about them. It’s always been about the people … a people who believe in freedom, opportunity, honesty, hard work and a commitment to future generations. We are paying a tremendous price for a bipartisan government that continues to fail to meet its responsibility. At some point, we must end this calamity. We are now forced to wait another two years before we’ll get a chance to attempt to send them a message. I don’t think we have another two years to wait for them to drive the nation further into the hole. Our forefathers, the framers of the American Constitution, recognized the threat of governmental tyranny — the use of arbitrary power by those in government over her people — but they were also concerned with the danger associated with a populace uprising. “Separation of powers” and “checks and balances” were designed to protect the country from the European kind of rule. As a nation we must put aside our political differences and demand accountability from the people who have sworn to serve. It’s time for the American people to make their will known and insist that the government do their job to serve and protect us, not themselves.

Local student in ‘Talented Youth’ program By Lou Varricchio newmarketpress@denpubs.com MIDDLEBURY — Jared Schauer, a student from Middlebury, will attend the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth’s challenging programs for academically gifted second through 12th graders this summer. Be A Scientist and the Ancient World and Cryptology and Principles of Engineering Design are among more than 100 Center for Talented Youth’s, or CTY, summer program courses available during two three-week sessions this summer. The format of the program makes it possible for bright students to work at an accelerated pace, study topics in depth, and explore subjects that are not usually available to students their age. CTY programs are offered at 24 sites, from Johns Hopkins

University in the east to Stanford University in the west. The Center offers two kinds of Summer Programs. This summer, Schauer will enroll in the “Whodunit?— Mystery and Suspense in Literature and Film” program at Roger Williams University in Bristol, R.I. This writing class introduces students to an intriguing genre of popular culture: mystery. They then apply their knowledge of mysteries in writing critical essays, brief stories, and scenes. According to Teri Schauer of Middlebury, the student’s mother, Schauer qualified for CTY Summer Programs by participating in the Annual Talent Search. During the talent search, he took above-grade level tests designed for older students as a means of gaining insight into their abilities, she said. CTY draws students from 50 states, the District of Columbia, and some 120 countries.

The Vergennes Lions collected 40 banana boxes of donated non-perishable items for the Vergennes Food Shelf at stores in Vergennes; 41 boxes of edible items were donated to the Bristol Food Shelf which is located at the Bristol Shaw’s. “What really helped in Bristol, were 15 boxes of items donated by Shaw’s its self to start the day,” said Larry Simino, a Lions Club member. “The folks that manage the Bristol Food Shelf said they’ve been most appreciative of the support from Shaw’s and the people of the greater Bristol area year round.”

New state entomologist is ’skeeter expert By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com MONTPELIER — Florida used to get a bad rap from residents and tourists alike for its clouds of biting mosquitos, until officials aggressively tackled the problem through a statewide spraying program starting in the 1970s. Now, it’s Vermont’s turn to be in the spotlight; it is already on several Internet lists of “infested states” along with a growing awareness of mosquito-borne infectious diseases locally. Ignoring the mosquito problem in Vermont will have long term effects on human and animal health, agriculture, and tourism dollars. The State of Vermont has addressed rising concerns about the future of the insect problem in the state by appointing Alan Graham as its new entomologist. Graham is an expert

on mosquito biology. The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food, and Markets appointed Graham as state entomologist last week. Graham has served on staff at the agency since 2001, most recently as vector management coordinator. Graham steps into his new role with a wealth of experience in entomology, specializing in mosquito management. His interest in insects began at an early age. Over the past decade at the agency, his work has focused on arborvirus surveillance and mosquito suppression activities. A venerable mosquito expert, he has assembled an impressive collection of 45 species for the state. He is a member of the Northeastern Mosquito Control Association, the American Entomological Society, the Entomological Society of America, and The American Mosquito Control Association, among other organizations.

Graham is a graduate of the University of Delaware with a Master of Science degree in Entomology and Applied Ecology. He has an undergraduate degree from Syracuse University in Zoology, with a focus on invertebrates. He has taught school in Costa Rica and traveled extensively. For 7 years he worked at Stroud Water Research Center in London Grove, Pa., doing ecological stream research, studying river systems along the east coast and as far west as Idaho. During his tenure at the agency, Graham has also worked with various issues involving exotic pest surveillance, household pest

Civil War photo is a Vermont mystery By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com MIDDLEBURY — Paul Wright, a Kingston, Mass., resident, is attempting to solve a 142-year-old mystery, according to a Vermont Civil War web site Vermontcivilwar.org. The New England-based researcher is attempting to track down the identity of a shadowy Civil War soldier from Vermont that appears on an 1865 makeshift one-cent photo postcard. The man may be one of

Portrait of an unknown soldier: A mysterious Vermont man appears in this 1865 photograph. Photo courtesy of Paul Wright

Wright’s ancestors who served in the War Between the States. The back of the photograph, originally taken as collodion-on-glass (wet-plate) negative, bears an October 1865 postmark. What appears to have been an address label, affixed to the back of the picture, no longer survives. An intact address label might have made identification of the unknown soldier easier. The faded Civil War-era photograph, taken by S.F. Serlin of Woodstock was found in a box with other photographs that were originally owned by Wright’s great-grandfather Nathaniel Thomas Wright of Kingston, Mass. Nathaniel Thomas Wright’s first wife was Cora Tiffany (1861-1884); Cora’s father was Otis E. Tiffany. Cora’s father appears to have been a 19th-century resident of Chelsea, Vt. The U.S. Army’s 1864 Adjutant General's Report and 1892 Revised Roster listed a 34year-old Otis Tiffany as a resident of Chelsea, Vt. However, Wright is not sure if Otis Tiffany is the mystery man in the photo since no image of him has ever been identified. According to Vermontcivilwar.org, Tiffany enlisted in the Union army on July 21, 1862, as a private in Company G of the 10th Vermont Infantry. He was first listed as “missing-in-action” in July 1864 after the

Battle of Monocacy near Frederick, Md. However, Tiffany soon turned up as a prisoner-of-war after the Confederate victory. Tiffany must have been released by his Confederate jailers because he is listed as having died of disease in Staunton, Va., on Aug. 30, 1864. Federal troops, under Maj. Gen. David H. Hunter, had taken control of the rebel city of Staunton in June 1864. Curiously, Union officers in Staunton at the time of Tiffany’s death included future U.S. Pres-

idents Rutherford B. Hayes and William McKinley. Despite the tantalizing, albeit weak, tidbits that seem to link the Woodstock photograph to Otis Tiffany, Wright still can’t be sure—Tiffany died a year prior to the photo’s 1865 posting and the soldier in the photograph has corporal stripes stitched on his jacket sleeve. There is no record of Tiffany ever having been promoted beyond the rank of private.

Farm Equipment,, Inc.

RUTLAND — The non-partisan Vermonters for Health Care Freedom released documents last week indicating that the Shumlin administration completed a substantial amount of work on the analysis of the Green Mountain Care taxing plan before directing consultants to stop work in late November. Administration officials also approved modeling of a combined employer payroll tax and individual income tax to raise the $1.6 billion needed to fund the program. For mer Rutland mayor, now VHCF Executive Director Jeff Wennberg joined House Minority Leader Don Turner and Senate Minority Leader Joe Benning in a State House press conference last week to announce what was learned from reviewing over 1,600 pages of documents released through an access to public documents request filed by VHCF late last month. Rep. Turner, Sen. Benning and other legislators had sought the release of the missing financing plan by direct appeal to Secretary of Administration Jeb Spaulding, but Spaulding rejected the request, stating that the legislature

no longer required the information this year. Wennberg said a review of correspondence between Vermont officials and University of Massachusetts Medical School consultants hired to produce the report prove that the administration is hiding information from the public. “The consultants billed and were paid nearly $40,000 for work on the taxing plan – work that never appeared in the final report. As late as Nov. 16, the consultants were still analyzing taxing systems to support single payer. But by Nov. 26, someone in the administration told them to stop work on that part of the report,� Wennberg said, pointing to meeting agenda as proof. Wennberg said the documents did not include any of the consultant’s work products, and that new document requests were being made for that purpose. “We are now seeking the information we know must exist but has been withheld by the administration. We are also requesting documents directly from UMass through the Massachusetts access to public records law,� Wennberg said. “The legislature requested this information. The taxpayers paid for this information. But for some reason the Shumlin Administration does not want you to see it, and now they

RUTLAND — The non-partisan Vermonters for Health Care Freedom released documents last week indicating that the Shumlin administration completed a substantial amount of work on the analysis of the Green Mountain Care taxing plan before directing consultants to stop work in late November. Administration officials also approved modeling of a combined employer payroll tax and individual income tax to raise the $1.6 billion needed to fund the program. For mer Rutland mayor, now VHCF Executive Director Jeff Wennberg joined House Minority Leader Don Turner and Senate Minority Leader Joe Benning in a State House press conference last week to announce what was learned from reviewing over 1,600 pages of documents released through an access to public documents request filed by VHCF late last month. Rep. Turner, Sen. Benning and other legislators had sought the release of the missing financing plan by direct appeal to Secretary of Administration Jeb Spaulding, but Spaulding rejected the request, stating that the legislature

no longer required the information this year. Wennberg said a review of correspondence between Vermont officials and University of Massachusetts Medical School consultants hired to produce the report prove that the administration is hiding information from the public. “The consultants billed and were paid nearly $40,000 for work on the taxing plan – work that never appeared in the final report. As late as Nov. 16, the consultants were still analyzing taxing systems to support single payer. But by Nov. 26, someone in the administration told them to stop work on that part of the report,� Wennberg said, pointing to meeting agenda as proof. Wennberg said the documents did not include any of the consultant’s work products, and that new document requests were being made for that purpose. “We are now seeking the information we know must exist but has been withheld by the administration. We are also requesting documents directly from UMass through the Massachusetts access to public records law,� Wennberg said. “The legislature requested this information. The taxpayers paid for this information. But for some reason the Shumlin Administration does not want you to see it, and now they

English Channel from page 1 half, one way, to make it to master ’s classes; she swims in Vermont lakes as early as April and as late in the year as November,” he said. “Bethany must not only train her body to swim far, she must also train her body to swim fast; she will be competing against the brutal tides of the Channel near the end of her 21-plus mile crossing. Bethany must also spend time swimming in frigid waters in order to acclimate her body to the water temperatures she will encounter while swimming the Channel.” Maguire said he is representing Intrepid Athletics, and Bethany Bosch’s 2014 English Channel Crossing effort, and plans several activities this year to help build awareness and funding for the Herculean undertaking. On Saturday, March 23, at 7 p.m., at Merchant’s Hall, located at 40-42 Merchants Row, in downtown Rutland, Intrepid Athletics will host a benefit concert for Bosch. The event will feature the Irish music of Extra Stout and the rock of Rutland’s Rick Redington and the Luv. Tickets for the benefit concert are $15 each, and all proceeds will go toward supporting Bosch’s 2014 English Channel crossing. “Some of Bethany’s swimming accomplishments include completing her first eight-mile open water swim in Lake

Champlain in the summer of 2010,” Maguire added. “In 2011, she completed a 10 mile swim on Lake Memphremagog. Along the way, she has also trained in Kinsale, Ireland, and has participated in several Masters swim meets.” One of Bosch’s more hair-raising swims was in choppy San Francisco Bay a few weeks ago. She successfully completed the 1.5-mile, wet-suit swim, from Alcatraz Island to San Francisco, in water hovering around 50-degrees Fahrenheit. The trick for such a gruelling endurance swim in chilly bay water is during slack tide, when neither potentially deadly flood tide nor ebb tide currents are moving.

Chili Festival from page 1 for adults and kids 8 and under are free. A portion of the proceeds from this year ’s event will benefit Addison County HOPE and CVOEO. The festivities include music on the upper and lower parts of Main Street. The Grift, a local band. will play from 5-8 p.m. in the beverage tent. The Middlebury Volunteer Fire Department will have a fire truck on display and the Middlebury Police Department will have a police cruiser on display from 1:30-4:30 p.m. Kids will be allowed to explore the truck and police cruiser with supervision.

Energy Center from page 1 vice president for generation and energy innovation, said the plans include restoration of many of the main building’s original features, including an historic metal ceiling, terra cotta tiled facade, and stainless steel trim on windows and signage. “The annex, which is in significant decay, will receive a completely new face, including key attributes of the larger building’s art deco style,” Costello said. “We’re also using an art deco sign to visually connect the two buildings.” The design is by Ralph Nimtz of NBF Architects of Rutland. The project is being managed by Russell Construction Services of Rutland, which is nearing completion of selective interior demolition work in anticipation of construction starting in March. The project, scheduled for completion in October, includes triple-glazed fiberglass windows, a white, reflective membrane roof with a walkway for public view of a 14-kilowatt solar array, LED and extensive natural lighting, an energy-efficient revolving door, R60 ceiling and R30 wall insulation, and an open work environment with exposed mechanical and electrical systems. The building is expected to receive Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. “The project has received a lot of LEED points for rehabbing a deteriorated structure, recycling building materials and use of high-efficiency systems, which will make it cheaper and cleaner to operate,” Nimtz said. Mayor Chris Louras (D), who led a city panel that provided input on site selection, praised the design. “I see the EIC as a tremendous addition to downtown Rutland,” Louras said. “We’re replacing one of the most troubling properties in the entire city with what I know will be one of the most exciting additions to Rutland in a generation.”

Guest Commentary How will they explain? I asked Dick Thordal of Middlebury Community Television if he would replay, for me, a video recording of what Assistant Superintendent Dr. Carol Fenimore of Addison Central Supervisory Union had to say about the Common Core. The video shows Dr. Fenimore speaking at a Mary Hogan Elementary School board meeting Nov. 12. The Common Core is expected to be the new standard in Vermont in place for the 2015 school year. According to the Common Core State Standards, the core “provides a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.” I was impressed with Dr. Fenimore’s comments about the Common Core. Dr. Fenimore did say something that I believe she may need to look into a little more; she made reference that Addison County schools are doing just fine. I do not agree. I believe the results of the NECAP—the New England Common Assessment Program series of reading, writ-

ing, mathematics and science achievement tests, administered annually, which were developed in response to the Federal No Child Left Behind Act—will show that after eight years of trying to implement the Vermont’s own framework, we are still far away from schools that are “fine”. We look “fine” because results are provided in a false manner. I intend to ask school officials for the Item Analysis Report for the Mary Hogan Elementary School and the Middlebury Union Middle School, or MUMS, and the 11th grade report of Middlebury Union High School to see how far we have really improved. Dr. Fenimore was right regarding the change of direction that is on its way—concerning what is to be learned, how it is to be delivered, and how our students will be assessed, according to Common Core State Standards for mathematics. A stated goal is actually produce a large number of mathematically proficient students—not like the mathematics literate ones we are creating—but calling them mathematically proficient, as you will see, below, a mathematically proficient student according to the NECAP can gets 27 points out of 66 and also failed to answer all 16 geometry

questions correctly. This is the actual definition of “proficient” from the literature sent home to parents. Do you think this, and many others, are the student described below? Proficient: Students performing at this level demonstrate minor gaps in the prerequisite knowledge and skills needed to participate and perform successfully in instructional activities aligned with the GLE at the current grade level. It is likely that any gaps in prerequisite knowledge and skills demonstrated by these students can be addressed during the course of typical classroom instruction. I am not too worried about the students if they get the correct opportunities, but will they? I doubt it. I do believe that the NECAP results, after eight years, will still show that most of our students are math illiterate rather than math proficient The NECAP results indicate that a math illiterate student is a math proficient student in many cases. It also misrepresents the category “proficient with distinction” as—on the same Item Analysis Report—it indicates that a person the failed 33 percent of the test was “proficient with distinction”. How does it do that?

Easy—it hides the truth. Prove it? Ok, let’s go. I would first like to tell you a story about a seventh grader: He is, to my reckoning, a math illiterate student, but not according to the NECAP, the scoring performed, and approved by Vermont’s Education Department. On the NECAP in question, this student took a seventh-grade assessment back in October which was designed to tell what he, and his classmates, knew concerning what was taught in our schools—this, from kindergarten to the sixth grade using the Vermont framework. Here are the scores this seventh grade student received: Numbers and Operations: 10 correct out of 20; Geometry: zero correct out of 16; Functions & Algebra: 12 correct out of 19, and Data: five correct out of 11. All told, this seventh grade student receive 27 points out of 66 points. This means he failed almost 60 percent of the assessment meaning his grade would be 40 percent. Was he classified as sub-

stantially “below proficient”? No. He was classified as “proficient”. He was classified as mathematically proficient. So, you can see that in our schools a mathematically proficient student can also be a mathematically illiterate student at the same time. If this seventh student was actually interviewed, he would admit that he had guessed at many of the answers (the majority of the questions were multiple choice so the amount of information actually known is most likely worse because of guessing). I would also like to look at the percentages for the State of Vermont on the 15 questions released for the public to see. You will be impressed. The percent indicated is the number of students in Vermont schools that answered the particular math question correctly Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question

percent percent percent percent percent percent percent percent percent

Question Question Question Question Question Question

10-80 percent 11-60 percent 12-10 percent 13-25 percent 14-50 percent 15-58 percent

If this is what a group of Vermont students know as they begin the study of the seventh-grade framework, do you think they will do well? I don’t believe they will do well in math. And you know what? I know they didn’t do well in math. I am ashamed of our state department officials, school officers, and school board memberss for this incredible misrepresentation of the truth. I do hope that people, like Dr. Fenimore, will change this state of affairs, but I doubt it with the current leadership we have in mathematics in my school district. I now learn that those officials and teachers who have sunk our kids in the past will be in charge of the change to the Common Core. So, yet again, the fox is hired to guard the hen house. My advice: protect your children; keep them at home. James Callahan Middlebury
