Here is an interesting take on NCLB and high stakes testing, provided by singer-songwriter and storyteller Tom Chapin. Once you’ve listened to the song “Not on the test“, make sure to read the statement and facts pages as well. The line that stands out most to me is this one:
Sleep, sleep, and as you progress
You’ll learn there’s a lot that is not on the test.
And by the way, there is no mention whatsoever of technology in the song, so that must not be on the test either …..
