Mayor Bloomberg and other politicians fight for more testing of our kids. It covers so many things for them. Most importantly, it is used to judge teachers and the possibility of shutting down schools. In NYC, Mayor Bloomberg has set up multiple guidelines in his hopes of shutting down schools to get rid of all veteran educators so he can place his political cronies in positions to manipulate the children.
There is so much pressure in all schools to raise these biased tests that what is totally ignored are social issues that are disturbing behavior from the kids. I personally see it first hand over many years in my school. There is a ridiculous amount of pressure that is placed on administrators in fear of having the school shut down entirely.
There are mental diseases that are relatively new to the general public like Aspergers where no one has a defined answer how to treat yet these students and all students are forced to take these standardized test. It is painful to watch children so stressed over tests that many believe are unjust.
When will the general public recognize that current political educational policies in this country are poisoning our youth and in many cases are stressing out young people to no end?
Is it just a coincidence that the last mass shooting in a movie theater, mall, and now school are done by young people just exiting our school system?
Are you seriousy using these the tragedy of these dead kids to push your "Don't Judge Us Teachers, No Testing" agenda you've been flogging here for months?
You are loathsome. You are less than loathsome. You're as bad as those crazy Religious nuts who are going to "protest" the funerals.
Using this horror to flog for the same old Union-backed political desires and self-serving employment wishes?
GFY Copernicus. You are evil.
