Who Do We Have To Blame?
I am not looking to place blame, I'm looking
for answers/solutions. Why is it in a nation
of our wealth and magnitude, we can't
educate our children better than we do?
We've become so obsessed with assessment
testing yet this system is seriously flawed.
This shotgun method of teaching should be
outlawed. How long has this been going on
with less than stellar results? Although
certain circles will deny teaching to these
tests, the fact remains, indeed we do. Does
this not make these tests invalid? The goal
or objective has become high percentiles and
true education has falen by the wasyside.
