LINCOLN â€“ For a little over an hour Wednesday night, Rhode Island Commissioner of Education Deborah Gist fielded queries from parents, teachers, Town Council and School Committee members and others about the status of education in town and beyond.
Before that, however, she spent approximately 30 minutes discussing how the Lincoln School District stacked up against others statewide, and how Rhode Island's test scores relate to those nationally and internationally.
