4. The entire education reform scam

is about money. Fill in the bubble tests are the norm (pun intended) because they are profitable, quick to score and amass mountains of useless data quickly with which political judgements can be justified as educational decisions. Also, the curriculum for the test can be revised every few years to make it "more rigorous" and so justifies buying new books and tests to reflect them. It's nothing but a goddamn racket that tells you nothing of value about any school.
