I just heard a story on the news about kids who were in the country less than three years being required to take the same reading tests as students who were born in this country. The rationale behind this decision is that testing tells the policy makers what is needed to help these kids. I say BULL SH**!!!!!!!. The only thing these tests do is provide extra income for the test makers. If the powers that be really care about helping these kids succeed they will provide more money for smaller classes and provide more supportive services. The one thing the kids and the schools do not need is more testing.
