Math Teacher Doing Math

While on my lunch break today I started discussing the amount of practice testing we have been doing at the school lately. I tracked back to two weeks before the Holiday Break and started counting the days used for taking practice state math exams, practice state literacy exams, the actual state literacy exam, and the Acuity math exam. Out of 27 potential school days, 15 days were devoted to testing or practice testing. That leaves only 12 days to actually teach the kids what they're going to be tested on. I don't think I really need to say anything else.

All the testing is a hot topic of discussion among the parents in our little town. It's nuts.
