  •  Our kids were lab rats under (5+ / 0-)

    quite a few Texas testing regimens. Each was "new and improved."  We lived through TEAMS, then TAAS, then TAKS and now it is STAAR, although they have graduated.  

    I do hope you take him to a real bookstore periodically to pick out some fun reads.  Those are the ones I mainly remember from school - I was heavily into Bradbury and Heinlein about that time.  

    Best wishes to you both!

    The truth always matters.
