    Letters to the Editor...
    student burnout

    I don't know for certain if we are creating
    student burnout. I do believe that testing
    children in all areas creates undue
    pressure on the children, parents, and
    teachers. Children need the foundation in
    math, reading and writing before they are
    tested by the states. I am curious as
    finding the reading level on the students
    at the third grade level. Is the reading
    level based on the words the student can
    read in the passage, or does it also
    include the comprehension the child should
    have. I have a child who can call the
    words and not make a mistake, but when I
    ask comprehension questions she can't
    answer them. Our school is trying to find
    the level of each child starting in first
    grade, but the materials they are using
    does not include comprehension. Without
    the comprehension the words don't help the
    child.
