    This alarming trend extends beyond public education. I am just so focused on public education right now because my daughters are recent high school grads and my husband and I were so invested in their education. Luckily they went to a great public high school, but they were still subjected to high stakes testing. I teach a Biology course preparing students to take the Biology MCAS here in MA. Passing this test (along with the math and ELA MCAS tests) has become a requirement for graduation. Someone is making a lot of money off of this testing. What a way to stifle  a kid's interest in science. Now they are dehumanizing the teacher evaluation process.  How demoralizing. Immigradvocate (see comment below) says there is a move to get this teacher reinstated. I will be following this closely.  Thanks for your thoughts.
