It's About Time!!

Finally an "official" group has come to the same conclusion parents came to years ago - our children are being tested to death!

The Blue Ribbon Commission on Testing and Accountability for our state has reported that too much time is being spent on testing. They will send their recommendations to the State Board of Education, which will decide whether to embrace them or not. Please read the article from today's "News and Observer" by clicking on the link below. If you agree with these findings, NOW is the time to speak up and let the State Board know how you feel. I hear so many parents complaining about the rampant "teaching to the test" mentality that pervades our public schools. Don't miss this chance to do something about it! Here's the link:

P.S. - If I have a chance, I'll try to post the email address for you...
