Subject: The importance of the test score
Message:
I enjoy workshops like "The Many Faces of Learning". My problem comes when the Districts' not concern with how kids learn but with what they score on the standardized test. My job performance is based on my school's index, not on methods I use to teach or the intelligence of my students. They provide us with plenty professional development but in the end it is the score that counts. Does anyone have any suggestions how to deal with this situation?

Don't worry about it. The education pendulum will swing back so that not so much emphasis is put on test score results. This too shall pass as my mother always says. Just play the game. Do the best job you can. Keep your students enthused and enjoy the children. That is what is important for both you and your students.
