HARP at Beaksley Elementary

March 1, 2011

I doubt that many enjoy these tests or receive benefits from them, other than those who make profits off them.  I contemplated adding some statistics about the negative effects high-stakes tests have managed to have on schools, students, teachers, families, communities and public education.  Then, I decided that nobody tells the story better than former proponent Diane Ravitch. Please take a gander at her work if you haven’t already.
