- Dear God/dess, I hope you’re right about standardized testing. I feel as though the pendulum of idiocy has swung SO far that, really, the only way to GO is back.
I was listening to NPR the other day – they were talking about standardized testing – and one teacher (or maybe it was a vice principal) said, and I’m pretty much quoting here, that “we teach them how to pass the tests and hope that somewhere along the way a little real learning gets in.” [Italics mine — Hugh]
Tell me exactly HOW that serves our kids – and our future???
We’ve gotta fix this mess.
