I generally really like Matt Di Carlo and the Shanker Blog. They do a good job of explaining a lot of the problematic math behind test-based accountability. However, even from the “moderates” in this debate, the thing missing are the actual kids. Nowhere in the discussion is whether it’s worthwhile for kindergarteners to spend their time TAKING A TEST (and all the test prep that goes along with it).Edit this post on GitHub.
