what we need is a testing program that doesnt undermine our kids self-esteem. the programs out there, the ones that ask the teacher for the answers, the ones that give the kids no choice in their placement, the ones that tell the kid if they cant do something, the ones that tell the kid if they can do something, the ones that give the kid a choice between two standards, the ones that dont even let kids apply for a gate program, are not the program that i am talking about. we need to find a way for all of our kids to be able to engage in a learning environment, so that they can feel good about themselves, feel confident in their ability, and have the opportunity to reach for their goals.
