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?

We are told not to "stress out" our kids and yet "get those test scores up!!!" I say just teach. Test scores don't take look at individual situations such as lack of sleep, fight with mom, prior knowledge, ect. As of yet, we aren't fired for test scores, so give your students all that you can to prepare them for life and sleep well at night.
