I have to give "standardized" tests to my students. THEY ARE FOUR YEARS OLD!
NCLB is the biggest joke there is. If you read up on it, it is based after a law in texas. There were a number of schools that were caught fudging test scores so that they would not lose money.
There is a good idea, If your students are doing poorly, we are going to take money away from your school so you have less to help the kids get better test scores.
Great thinking in my book.
