This is a wonderful commentary from singer-songwriter Tom Chapin on the end-of-year tests that students and their teachers are now focusing on. In addition to core subjects that have been virtually eliminated from the curriculum (like social studies), art, music, drama and author/illustrator visits are almost things of the past.
What kind of society are we creating here? Anyone like to chime in?
Thanks to Lee Wilson at Education Business Blog for his post on this song.
