If they are at reading level how are they expected to read above reading level? My daughter does feel stress and anxiety. I didn’t go through all this testing and I am an educated person. What exactly does this test prove? What data will it give us? How can instruction be informed? Where is the differentiated instruction with the test of they are expected to be above reading level?
They make the tests above grade level so that children will do poorly. Then they will use those poor test scores as an excuse to fire the teachers, close down the schools, and turn them into for-profit charter schools. Currently, they are closing schools all over the country. Look at what is happening in Chicago, Philadalphia, Sacramento, etc.

Barbara–I completely agree with you! It’s breaking the children down!!! Our poor children–hopefully it all changes for the best!
Thanks for reading and commenting!!!
Have you heard of In Bloom? It’s a company that collects data on public school students from kindergarten to twelfth grade, and then SELLS the information to other companies. Anything your child does at school will be entered into the database: attendance, test scores, health issues, disciplinary issues etc.
Nine states have already agreed to participate, and they did so without the consent of parents.
I will definitely check it out! Thanks so much for reading and responding! It’s all so crazy!!!
