Susan lives it!!

Posted By: Elaine Hampton on October 28, 2004
 
Susan's view from the impact level of an "alternative" high school provides a valuable perspective. I ache with her in wanting to express the way this violent and criminal practice of high-stakes testing is slashing the heart out of our curricula and robbing our children of quality education and a future they deserve. We educators stand voiceless against the political machine and can only hope that one of the scores of scholastic publications addressing this issue will reach the right politician with the power to throw the switch.

I'll add Sirotnik's book to my library and hope that the writers' academic language can be understood by policy makers.
