Abstract

"City" piece on a controversy that has evolved from a policy at Portland's Deering High School, which has given most of the school's students seven mornings off in March and April while junior class members were taking the annual Maine Educational Assessment (MEA) tests. According to a letter sent out by Principal Brenda Roy, students not taking the test were asked to arrive up to three hours late to provide a quite testing environment. But parents are concerned about the amount of class-time their children are losing and want school officials to consider other means of dealing with the problem.
