Teaching for the Test? Relationship expert Dr. Molly Barrow

Are you frustrated as a teacher because you must focus your attention in the classroom to teaching for the FCAT test? Are you also teaching for the SAT and other college placement exams? As a parent do you meet your child's teachers for the first time on Parent Curriculum night and feel frustrated that your child's education is centered around arbitrary tests?

Psychologists know that tests are extremely limited in the information that can be assumed from the results of only one test. To hang the funding of a school or the opportunity for college, grants or loans on the results of one day's performance is ludicrous. Would you expect to go to work and have only one exceptional day and be rewarded with a promotion or a big business deal? In real life isn't it the consistent performance, day after day, that is typically rewarded? How did our school system get turned around? What can you do about it? I notice that often one letter or email can make a difference. Write your school board and ask that they fight on your behalf to make changes.
An avalanche begins with a falling snowflake.
