EPSD test, test and test again till mastery

Share

Gates

Parents watch out! If you thought your children were tested enough in school now, wait until you hear about the district’s newest plans. At the 8/10/2015 school board meeting the Superintendent announced that your kids will now have the opportunity to reach “mastery”. How you may ask? Well, by taking the tests over and over and over until they do.

This may sound strange to hear from the Superintendent since he recently admitted we already have an over-testing problem in the schools.

Also the Superintendent explained how EPSD will have continuous grading throughout the year instead of just quarterly grading. This is a pilot program beginning with the sixth grade in Eyer Middle school.

Changes like this one are an example of how schools keep pushing the “Common Core” standards of student assessment, whereby the schools keep introducing regimes of ever increasing data collection of students, starting with what seems to be the innocuous collection of data assessing the students’ ability to learn. It quickly changes to the collection of endless amounts of personal data through homework assignments asking about personal health/wealth questions of all family members.

Corporations love to know how best to market their products and what better way than through data collection that starts in grade school. If you think that “Common Core” is a questionable program at best and you want to know how to protect your child from all this data collection check out this article.
