    I'm just a parent tired of teachers freaking out about tests and sending home notes about how test days will last 12 hours if they need to and include bihourly snacks and water breaks to maximize my child's test taking abilities.  Tired of seeing the same simple math and reading concepts drilled and redrilled making school boring as spit.

    If snacks are so beneficial,  why not have them when kids are learning?  When are you going to stay after school to teach?  What life are you preparing these children for?
