READING THIS, Diane Ravitch had these questions that you and I need answered: Can a multinational corporation stifle free speech? Can't teachers & parents criticize these required tests? Can Pearson/PARCC hide behind copyright law to prevent any OPEN DISCUSSION of the quality and developmental appropriateness of the tests they create? When a conscientious teacher writes that the test her students took in 4th grade were written in language appropriate for 6th and7th grade, isn't this information that parents and the public need to know? Is the copyright law being used to hide the shoddy quality of Pearson's work?Does the 'fair use doctrine,' which permits limited quoting from copyrighted material, pertain to standardized tests? Is it possible to give a test to millions of children and expect that none of the questions will be discussed at home, on social media, or in teachers' lounges?
