The Reporter Two-Way: State testing scores for Aspen School District

A report showing falling test scores in the Aspen School District has brought up concerns regarding local academics.

Reporter Alycin Bektesh covers the school system. She explains that it’s a little more complicated than what meets the eye, based on changing exams and other factors that are included in the state’s evaluation system. But a concerned accountability group said, if you look at percentile rankings over the years, Aspen doesn't stack up where it used to.

She talks about this issue with news director Carolyn Sackariason.
