Let the Testing Begin . . . or End!

Tis the season of state testing. OMG! Can the State add more tests? The Texas public school system is saturated with testing. The testing continues next week and pretty much goes all the way through May. Necessary? Absolutely not! I can go on and on and on about the issues surrounding the testing procedures that are currently in place in Texas, but blah, blah, blah. It obviously doesn’t matter what the professional teacher thinks and how it is affecting our students. My prediction: a larger welfare population as a result from dropouts because they cannot pass the tests from a curriculum the majority will never use in their chosen career paths—IF–a big IF–they graduate from high school. We are in need of a HUGE flip in public education.
