Testing Burdens and Blunders
Megan Reichgott's reporting for the Associated Press is appearing in many places but I'll send you to The Boston Globe. Not much sympathy for Harcourt, Pearson, or any of these profiteers yet the fact these testing providers are slow in reporting, commit errors far too often, misplace results ... is illustrative of the folly of our current data-obsessed education policy. NCLB and today's high stakes testing emphasis will be our ruin unless there are some radical changes in the very near future. Peace ... or War!
