Deconstructing The Myths of Governor Markell’s Veto Of House Bill 50

Art has never and will never be a one size fits all kinda class and it kills me to see our leaders in Delaware, locally and nationally, taking away the individuality in public schools. No child is one size fits all, so why should tests be “universal.” And if tests are the end all, be all in education, then why should teachers go to college to teach, or be Delaware teacher certified, or pass the PRAXIS, or have a professional evaluation system. Let’s really save money, delete the above and just TEACH TO THE TEST!!!  I need to paint something before I explode….
