Re: Privacy and military and testing, oh, my!



If we are going to have to have so much sarcasm on this listserve,
couldn't people at least pepper it with a little wit?

|Golly! I'm supported by a political party! That HAS to be a
|first. The Texas Green Party has an item on its platform that
|explicitly addresses this
|issue:
|
|13. We oppose the presence of corporate advertising in
|schools. We insist, if military recruiters are invited to
|schools or the school has a ROTC program, that others also be
|invited who can provide an alternate view of the military and
|its enlistment promises and offer young people viable
|alternatives to enlistment. We also oppose the practice of
|public schools providing lists of students' names to military
|recruiters or corporate advertisers.
|
|Many of you would also like #8:
|8. We oppose over reliance on high-stakes standardized tests
|when such tests are used as the primary criterion for grade
|advancement, graduation, or teacher pay. Likewise, we refute
|that the averaged scores from such tests can be used to make
|fair or meaningful comparisons between schools.
