      should be relevant to their adult lives.

      The tests, which should be and are required by federal law to be based on the material to be taught, should test the effectiveness of the teaching of that relevant material.

        And teaching to a test,  there is a difference in results too.  Making the test double as salary indicator maximizes the likelyhood that teaching to the test will result, not best teaching practices, and hoping the test covers something not covered in the core.
