High Stakes Testing

Good thing our students are being assessed with such fabulous testing tools. And that teachers whose students do poorly on such tests will be punished. I'm glad that I work so hard to produce young readers so that their reading and comprehension abilities will be assessed in this way.

I feel better about our country's education system, don't you?
