Stop High-Stakes Testing
An Appeal to America's ConscienceeBook - 2007
"Stop High-Stakes Testing: An Appeal to America's Conscience is a compelling indictment of the use of high-stakes assessments with punitive consequences in our public schools. The authors trace the history of the policy and document the inequities for children of poverty that undergird high-stakes testing practices. Lack of dental and medical care, environmental violence, insufficient school funding, racism, and classism_all factors that contribute to this dire situation_are discussed in depth. The authors make a convincing case for discontinuing the unjust testing that has been forced on our nation's public school children."-- Provided by publisher.
