  1. Is Testing Students the Answer to America’s Education Woes? We're not talking about an end to all testing - teachers test all of the time. It's based on classroom instruction and what they know students have learned. It's used to assess what the students didn't get, and then teachers use that data to adjust instruction, to go over the things they didn't get.

    What we're asking for an end to is over-testing. We want an end to pretending like these standardized corporate tests are reliable assessments. As stated by college essay service expert paper writers, no reliable objective data exists that actually measures what a student knows or has learned - all we know is what they were willing and able to put on a sheet of paper at that exact moment. Yet, we're supposed to hold teachers accountable to them? We want an end to this reform movement that has been co-opted by publishers, tech companies, and charter operators, all so they can get richer. Return control of our schools to families and professional educators.

    Middle and upper class public schools have been doing fine all along - the manufactured "crisis" is occurring in poor public schools - and low student achievement there reflects the poverty and lack of resources in those communities. How does a test fix poverty? How does firing a poor child's teacher feed them, give them parental support, or a safe home? This is society's mess, and reformers cowardly and lazily blame teachers for our society's unjust economic system and de facto segregation - all the while getting rich - yet the teacher pulling in $45k a year is the bad guy?
