A Citizen's Remonstrance.
Hynes, William A.
Phi Delta Kappan, v75 n7 p559-62 Mar 1994
Reading instruction can be transformed into cynical test-beating exercises. Victory arises from frequent practice in taking similar tests. Students who spend most of their time on test-type activities generally do better on reading tests than those who "waste" time reading for information or pleasure. Teachers whose students score highest on nonsensical standardized tests should be fired. (MLH)
