Tests: The truth and the propaganda.

Series Created By Susan Lee Schwartz (44 articles.) (View How Many People Read This)

The testing strategy used by the Charlatans who took over public education in the blink of an eye, once the groundwork was laid and the real professionals were removed. Evaluating is a tool of a practitioner used to determine levels in order to plans. By making evaluation  the center of NCLB, teaching became the national narrative instead of learning. This series will show you all you need to know about tests, what they accomplish, and what they cannot do... which is to assess the talent and expertise of an authentic educator.
