The authors have done an outstanding job of identifying the real reasons that we need to stop the standardized testing that is going on in our nations public schools. For thoses who are really concerned this book gives you all the facts and support to really get policy leaders to listen. Testtired

If you are an educator, I strongly suggest you read this book. If you are an educator who teaches in a public school, I want to insist you read this book. In language even an English teacher can understand, the authors point out the many, many problems with standardized tests. They progress from clearly explained technical aspects of how tests are constructed, through issues with accountability to bigger philosophical questions of what a quality education should entail. This book did more to help me understand the problems of current education reforms than any other single thing I've read. Please, if you care about young people and their learning, read this book.
