When will enough be enough? I have yet to meet one teacher, student or parent that actually likes standardized testing. There are so many negatives, if it was up to me I would do away with it as soon as possible.
I do not see the point in it at all. It puts pressure on students and teachers that is completely unnecessary and completely avoidable. Teachers are being put in jail and students are not passing to get into the next grade because of these tests. So what are we waiting on?
To make sure teachers are doing their job, why not have someone come sit in their classrooms and watch instead of taking a test. We need a school board that is more involved and a government that makes education a priority and not just put it on the back burner.
Education shaped the future and I feel as if it is never made a prominent issue when clearly it is. Where would our world be without education. It should still be treated as the privilege it once was. Teachers get paid almost nothing and they have the power to impact todays youth. If we start focusing on education more it will make society better as a whole.
I’m not sure what it would take so people can see this is a huge issue that no one is giving enough time to. We need to take out standardized testing from the curriculum and focus on other aspects besides if students can pass the test. Whether or not you are successful in life is not determined by a test and our education system should not be treated that way either.
