    I don't care what "nerves" I hit, it doesn't give you license to LIE:

    When you say standardized test are the only measure of a good teacher you are kinda taking a shit on anyone who's best gifts are not easily measured by the those tests.

    I NEVER SAID THAT YOU LIAR.

    I never even said they were a good measure.

    LIAR.

    •  Wow, (none)
      That is a lot of hostility.

      Maybe if your teachers were 'better' at teaching you to be a 'comprehensive' reader you would have realized that when I wrote "when you say standardized test are the only measure of a good teacher" you would realize it was not in quotes so that meant that I did not think that was your actual words but rather my interpretation of them.  If you had a 'better' teacher, you might be able to re-read your statement and realize that when you make a comment after someone expressed concern for the pressure that standardized testing puts on some kids is to say "could this induce them to be better teachers, and break through to them in some way" it could be taken to mean that you think the results of standardized tests are a good measure of a teacher's ability to reach all kids.

      I'm sticking with my interpretation of your words.

      But hey, stick with the all caps swearing, that's cool.

        You made up a specific reference to something I never said, never implied, and never intimated.  

        I never even expressed support for this program.

        All I suggested was that maybe a little bit of cash incentive would be motiviation.

          as a valid interpretation of your comment.  If you disagree and think I mischaraterized you... you are entitled to your opinion. I will defer to you as to what was in your mind when you wrote it but that does not make me a liar for reading something else into it, no matter how many times you say it.  But do what you need.
