It's hard to take any of this seriously, given the disarray at the Board and downstate, the news that the IL tests have been made so much easier over the years, and the rules of NCLB which don't all make sense, but here's the Sun Times' big package on the 2010 test scores: Posh schools make grade"As expected, schools in affluent districts or with selective admissions continued to pack the top of the charts.

What do you think? See anything interesting in there? Do you care?
