President Obama speaks on Standardized Testing madness

“Learning is about so much more than just filling in the right bubble. So we’re going to work with states, school districts, teachers, and parents to make sure that we’re not obsessing about testing, that the principles I just outlined are reflected in classrooms throughout the country—to make sure that our kids are enjoying learning, that our teachers are able to operate with creativity, to make sure we are preparing our kids for a lifetime of success.” —President Obama

We are glad to see this and hope this leads to reforms in the entire testing process to focus more on Student Assessments to make sure we give students the tools they need to succeed.
