Jerry Carr: Real testing

September 10, 2013 

Real testing

If it is true that standardized tests test for the knowledge that is absolutely necessary to function in this society, it is essential that those who currently hold critical positions in this society take these tests and that their scores be made public. This “high-stakes” testing should start with all those who hold public office, from the governor on down.
