In the past twenty years, I have asked hundreds of teachers, parents, and
administrators this question, "does standardized tests improve teaching and
learning"?Not one time has anyone said yes. No one has ever
shown gratitude for this test helping students to become smarter.We
spend a ton of time and money preparing students for the big test, yet no one
says it's beneficial. Some say, it makes students and teachers accountable..(?)
Why? Isn't it the state
and feds who are cheating?
