Parent to Pearson: Let my Child Learn.

Letter via blog comment.  “Parent to Pearson: Let me Child Learn.” Diane Ravitch’s Blog. June 7, 2012.  Retrieved from: http://dianeravitch.net/2012/06/07/parent-to-pearson-let-my-child-learn/

Diane Ravitch published and commented on a post left on her blog by a parent and educator who did not want their son taking the standardized tests.  Ravitch responds:

When you read this comment, reflect that the same politicians and policymakers like to prattle on about “choice,” but are not willing to permit any choice when it comes to the imposition of standardized tests on children. They like to blather about differentiated instruction, but insist that children all be judged by the exact same test.

We live in a low, dishonest decade.
