The institutional inertia of test-and-shame reform policies can be stopped dead at the local level. It just takes administrators and BOEs to stop operating out of fear. Start treating the tests as a four day inconvenience – useless and irrelevant. Four days. No more. Then let’s get back to basic arithmetic, the fundamentals of good writing, and reading for real reasons. back to nature studies, local history and geography, music, art, field days and field trips. Back to making the school experience interesting and meaningful. The quest for better test scores via test-prep, rallies, data walls, posted standards and learning objectives, endless searches for supporting evidence, close reading, and explaining every intuitive math operation has become white noise to kids. We must offer children more than that.
