4. And ditch that stupifying Star Test.


Teachers are great at teaching when given an open book of their own knowledge & experiences to teach from along with reasonable sets of guidlines.
Problem is, we have great teachers who can no longer work their own critical thinking ideas into a days's curriculum because they have been bound to teachung to those Star Test rules & pre-planned lessons.
Schools are rated by the Star Test results.
That's the problem.

Pisses me off that Public schools must follow the Star Test lessons to compete for school ratings, yet private charters do not.

They are free to teach the way public ed USED to be taught.

If Star Testing detetmines the rating of Public schools then EVERY school should have to also.

Star Testing is yet another way of dumbing down Public Ed
