Hi everyone, Lately I've had an interest in elementary education (I think it would be sweet to be able to teach and integrate sustainability into my curriculum), but one thing that really bothers me about the teaching profession is state testing. The thing is that i don't want to just be doing test prep all year long, so I have a few questions concerning state testing for any teachers out there: 1. What percentage of the stuff you teach over the school year would you say is strictly in order to prepare students for state tests (versus creative exercises, reading to the students, etc)? 2. Do some districts focus more on state tests than others? Thank you for your time!
