    Testing is essential as it is too all academic life. We can't remove it or discount it's importance especially in a failing system that has only recently stopped moving illiterate kids down the line to avoid hold overs. Low standards plague the system, nobody wants to raise the bar beyond what they think they can do  especially when they have no idea how to teach kids from low income communities. Test keep the bar high, and even the threat of being held accountable for failure keeps the adults working harder to fix these problems.
