“Breathing Life Back Into Education”

I’m a little late in finding it, but I absolutely adore this Denver Post opinion piece by a high school student in Colorado’s Cherry Creek schools. Among my favorite quotes:

I would spare my criticism of limited education funding going towards CSAPs if the tests weren’t so pointless. Teachers cannot count them as a grade for the class, and colleges can’t see the results. In all honesty, why should I apply myself on my eighth year of taking the test, answering the same dull, insipid essay questions such as “Is it important to challenge yourself every day?” (The answer: Not on CSAP days, it isn’t.)
