Where is the accountability for the social conditions under which students live? Where is the accountability for the mandated curricula imposed on public schools by politicians, legislators and testing companies?
Why aren't municipalities, legislators, and politicians held accountable for the high level of child poverty in the US? Why isn't Pearson held accountable if its tests and test-prep materials don't increase student learning? Why does it seem that the only options considered are to close schools and fire staff members? Is there no one else who has any responsibility for public education?
Stop the Testing Insanity!
