  • I have three children in elementary school. My youngest a third graders has suffered tremendously from this constant testing. He is stressed everyday. His teacher has often informed me of his now unwillingness to learn. He has lost all excitement for learning. These text don’t engage him. I as a parent can’t help but think that if his teachers were allowed to teach him instead of testing him that he could spend his time learning and happy in school. My child’s emotional well being is as important to me as his academic success. Without my children being OK. They cannot be successful in learning, regardless of curriculum. These standards hinder my children and force the public education system and it’s teachers to fail in educating my children. And They are MY children!
