Amen to This!!!

This an absolute testament to what a teacher unhampered by standardized tests could accomplish...

The thing that makes me so sad about schools now is that some of my BEST memories of school would never be able to happen in today's school systems.

The days of asking a question and taking the whole class period to explore and discuss and LEARN are over. Now all that matters is if students can pass the standardized tests. Passing a state test is not the same as learning in my book.

Wow! I get so fired up about this topic!
