Thompson: Parents Protest Test Testing In Charlotte-Mecklenberg

Nclu As a part of a continuing, seemingly endless, stream of reports on testing insanity, "School District Field-Tests 52 (Yes, 52) New Tests on Kids," by Valerie Strauss, describes the Charlotte-Mecklenberg district's testing of their standardized assessments on students.  Kids will have to take those 52 tests again in May. A massive protest by parents prompted the district to answer questions on its web site about the experiment. This is to fulfill promises made for the Race to the Top, and the school board will apparently have no vote on the matter.  Teachers are stressed out.  They were not consulted.  Some classes lost up to 30 hours.  - JT(@drjohnthompson) Image via
