"(BTW, if you want to see

"(BTW, if you want to see exactly where our nation stands, take the time to review one of these "misleading" tests. You'll then see who is really being misled.)" It really appears that you have not reviewed one of these "misleading" tests. These test are "difficult". They do have high expectations. Everyone would love to believe that when they went to school, things were harder and better. The truth is... the expectations have risen, and keep rising. There is more knowledge in the world every day. Every year we are expected to transfer more of it to our students. Take a released 8th grade test. See how well you do. Then see if it makes sense. You are right about the tests being bad. But that is how the FEDS and DPI want use to assess sudents' learning. It is sad...but they are not Dumb. The scores are what are misleading.
