What’s It All About
- If you ask parents of 3rd grade students what they want their children to be they often say things like confident, kind, and happy. Yet we expect everyone to learn the same things, to the same level, at the same time? What is the point when everyone is unique? Our obsessive focus on academic “achievement” measured by tests has pushed other goals to the back of the bus. Our education system also includes families, other organizations, television, and the Internet. All of these should also be accountable. Their final push is to encourage parents and teachers to have an open line of communication. The authors also include 12 test-related questions that parents should ask teachers along with a resource guide, detailed notes, and a glossary.
