Standardized Testing: High-Stakes for Students and for Corporate Bottom Lines.
Suchak, Bhawin
Journal for Living, n23 p36-41 2001
The movement towards national academic standards and high-stakes testing is driven by corporate interests seeking profits and ultimately, privatization of public education. Teachers, parents, and students have had no input into these policy decisions. Research shows that the standards movement penalizes low-income and minority students, replaces real curriculum with test preparation books, and does not improve academic performance. (TD)
