Every year we worry about the scores. Every day we strive to guide students in the learning needed to improve their scores. What do they mean, and how have they changed education? Are we now just teaching to the test instead of teaching to the child — the child’s needs with regards to becoming a thinking, caring, productive person? Are we causing children to lose talents because they aren’t exposed any more to art, music, and the joy of learning?
We believe that blogging, and preparing for blogging through reading and research will help our students and help answer the question, “What do we really want for our children?”
