This is a stretch, but we’ve all have been there. It is difficult to think under pressure. The greater the pressure, the less one thinks and must resort to pre-processed packets.

Now, take this scenario and apply it to eduction… Instead of a dollar, think of a child who will not become the doctor they otherwise would; the teacher who will drop out of the profession before her chance to forever inspire 2000 children to reaching their dreams. The school, built in 1890, that must now close due to charter schools allowed in on the flimy excuse of low test scores……

Standardized tests are not the answer….
