    Why does this seem to be so difficult to get people to understand? Answering my own question... Probably because there's gain for some in labeling schools as failures, and teachers as failures; and you can't do those things without having kids who are labeled as failures. No one would dare label the tests themselves (and the materials tied to the tests) as failures. They're perfect, because they  are premium priced and recommended by "experts." Bah!!! Tests should be diagnostic and used strictly to assess the areas in which kids' needs can be better met.
