Check out this editorial that argues AGAINST high-stakes tests in our schools. Here’s a taste:
We have monumental problems in our schools, and testing kids more and blaming teachers when they fail won’t help us solve any of them. Indeed, it will likely make them worse.
High-stakes testing may be the ultimate expression of what’s wrong with education in America, a system that’s been in steady decline for the past four decades, a period that roughly coincides with the rise of standardized testing.
So, who’s responsible for this common sense op-ed? No, not one of the MLive papers.
Remember, if it doesn’t come from the Mackinac Center, it doesn’t make it in MLive.
