Schools

We All Scream

|

Officials with the Arkport, New York, school system say they did not mean to penalize students whose parents took them out of a statewide English test for elementary school students. The school system gave all of the children who took the test ice cream. They gave none to those who didn't take the test. Officials say the ice cream was just another way that the school system awards achievement, similar to the special breakfast and certificate given to students who make the honor roll.
