11. Teachers are FORCED to teach to the test....failure is the result. Thus charter schools.
No school can have every child pass, they never say good job done, they just make the test harder and have more of them.

That is the goal.

The charter schools and vouchers to private schools are the reason for the testing. Trust me, teachers are not doing this on their own. They have scripted stuff to follow.
