Time for a change

It seems a little bit crazy, trying to smash through a brick wall with a spoon. You can chisel all you want, but it’s not going to break through. It’s just the wrong tool for the job and eventually, you need to replace it with a sledgehammer or something similar to get the job done. The same goes for Virginia’s testing system.  Trying to judge someone’s education level based on one multiple choice test taken at the end of the school year doesn’t seem to accomplish anything, other than showing how well some students can memorize answers. That’s why we support the proposal released by the Virginia Association of School Superintendents.
