What Does High Stakes Testing Do To The Formative Minds Of Children? As Long As There Is Money To Be Made, Rupert Murdoch Doesn't Care.

Predatory capitalists like Rupert Murdoch have no problem selling to an unsuspecting public the idea that high stakes testing and data driven instruction is a necessary part of children's education. Educators who understand child development know better. Quick question: What is the effect of incessant, mind numbing high stakes testing and narrow test prep curriculum coerced onto children masquerading as education reform?
Not only do high stakes testing events induce toxic stress on the formative minds of children, the whole curriculum gets screwed up! High stakes testing forced on children is a really dumb idea.
