It's over...for now!

Download word art here

The torture that is standarized testing is over for now.  I celebrated with several margaritas!

Next week the torture process starts for the older kids. 

At some point someone needs to realize that we're hurting these kids with all of these test.  We're teaching an entire generation to hate school. 

When we aren't forced to give them the actual test, we are forced to give them interim tests to predict how they'll do on the actual test.  We're so busy testing the kids that we don't have time to actually teach them.

It's sad and scary.

  2. Thank you for the word art!

    Wow - thank you for your comments about the standardized testing, it's nice to know teachers feel that way too. My daughter got her test scores back today and said, "I did eh" (don't know how to spell what she said - she wasn't happy.) I explained to her that these tests are NOT an indication of how far she can go in life!! It was a frustrating moment for a parent!! Thank you!!!
