Quotes

Tucker states, "The test-based accountability system now universally mandated in the United States — a system that reflects in every way the blue-collar conception of teaching as an occupation — has had 10 years to prove itself. The result is very low teacher morale, plummeting applications to schools of education, the need to recruit too many of our teachers from the lowest levels of high-school graduates, a testing regime that has narrowed the curriculum for millions of students to a handful of subjects and a very low level of aspiration. There is no evidence that it is contributing anything to improved student performance, much less the improved performance of the very-low-income and minority students for which it was in the first instance created."
