NYSED's Test Score Catastrophe
The systematic deliberate humiliation of the children of New York State by the NY State Education Department will be neither forgiven nor forgotten. These obscenely low scores are the result they wanted when they chose to score the tests this way. Children crying and doubting themselves. Parents wondering what they did wrong. Teachers expecting to be browbeaten by arrogant state officials and fearing for their jobs. This is not only child abuse, it is teacher and family abuse. If you're not enraged, you are not paying attention. The only way to fight back is to refuse the tests, starve NYSED for data, and take revenge on politicians who support this at the polls.
