How did testing and accountability become the main levers of school reform? ~ Diane Ravitch

We all need to stop and think deeply about what we want for all children.

I am convinced that the ‘easy answer’ of letting narrow products, “tests”, measure the value of schools to our society is foolhardy!  Further, I am convinced that our society needs to be investing in ways to improve education for all children.

Think about this: If you want to help children who are under weight and hungry – you don’t go out and focus on buying scales!
