Subject: The importance of the test score
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?

I find test scores, especially this time of year, to be some what frustrating. I've been spending days and days to make sure I've covered everthing in the curriculum so that my students will have at least a fighting chance and in the end their abilities, prior knowledge, prior school experiences, and desire will win!!! I went through my attendance folder and found that out of 30 fourth grade students only 16 started the year with me. I just received two students this week that tested at the primer level!!! What's a teacher to do?
