Students, Parents, and Teachers Say, "Take This Test and Shove It!"
Paths of Learning: Options for Families & Communities, n3 p46-47 Win 2000
Public school students, parents, and teachers are protesting "high stakes" standardized tests that bar many deserving students from promotion or graduation. A typical high stakes test is a state-mandated 10th-grade test that students must pass to graduate high school. They are called high stakes because a student's entire high school career rides on this one test, regardless of school performance. (LP)
