Re: FW: Julian Bond on NCLB testing



Mr. Burke, please get your facts straight. The NCLB focus on standardized
testing is a shameful regurgitation of unskillful past practices debunked
decade after decade ad nauseam. Mr. Hu is not "again confusing testing with
teaching" but quite simply repeating the fact that the pressure to teach
differently is one of the sad by-products of the neurotic and sometimes
psychotic narrow minded brain bashing surly immature educational
doublespoken obsession with standardized testing. Those who over-promote
them insult everyone's intelligence, civil rights, and fundamental humanity.
The
historical roots these tests have in the eugenics movement ought to spell
"caveat"
to us all. I await (a) your limited response, (b) your non-response, (c)
both "a" and "b".
Merci.
