So, the big state test is over. I can't wait to find out if my second grade students know how to read a histogram! There were so many questions with charts! And they are tricky! Like, how many bottles did so-and-so collect? Look at the chart….One bottle equals ten bottles. Good luck!
Who the hell cares if an eight-year-old can read a complicated chart? And if they can't, what does that mean? Maybe test them again in a few years when chart reading is something they can actually do, and use? Nah. Let's pigeon-hole them now, offer nothing to them in terms of widening their universe, and then test how wide their universe is. Now that should make for some shitty scores, and then the public schools can be privatized! Great idea!
