ARTICLE: Uh... no.

'Students Should Not Be Informed' Of Connection To Standardized Exams

I'm sure it's just the end-of-the-year talking here, but I think the New York State Department of Education needs to be punched in the face. They've approved bad test questions, released teacher names, and encouraged lying to students about a fake test. Out of control.

The memo reads, "The field tests should be described as brief tests of achievement in the subject." Instead of adding a few questions to the required tests, they thought it better to give another test and lie to the students.

Way to go.
