The Innovative Educator: Preparing Students for Life-Long Success is Not Preparing Students for Long Bubble Tests

Via Scoop.iteducational technology for teachers

Unfortunately, in the 21st century education reform has equated to measuring a school’s ability to produce good test takers. But think about it. In real life there are few if any tests to be taken. More than a decade into the 21st century and I have yet to take a test and I don’t envision any being in my future either. How did we get to a point in America where we’re measuring schools by their success in forcing students to waste their time being good at something few will ever need to do in real life? Could it be that this meaningless time waster is doing exactly what it was designed to do?
