  •  Sounds to me like this is a pretty good argument (0+ / 0-)

    for longer school days, a longer year, and more infrequent but more comprehensive testing.

    I am totally on board with the view that multiple choice doesn't always test everything it purports to, but it can do a pretty decent job of distinguishing between the people who know what's going on and the people who done (that is, it is unlikely to produce many false positives).

    Oh, and the testing (and testing time) should probably be totally out of your hands--literally.

    That said, I suspect there is a fair amount we don't really understand about how grade school education works and doesn't work.

    Ok, so I read the polls.
