After reading this article on Education Week: http://blogs.edweek.org/edweek/campaign-k-12/2011/03/duncan_82_of_schools_could_be.html I got to thinking... How can we put an end to standardized testing? Is there any kind of way that we can rid ourselves of the waste that this testing carries with it? It's to the point where I've had enough of hearing things such as those discussed in that article. 82%, really??? Doesn't that say something right there? The education system is BROKEN. I want a way for all teachers to join together and do what needs to be done...teach the kids without worrying about will this subgroup or that subgroup reach their proper level. So, what would it take? Really.
