Re: Lawmakers hold hearing on new standardized test

The State of Texas relies too much on these standardized tests for our children. That is all that they do seem to teach in our schools. They obviously do rely on them too much in order to allow a child to be promoted to the next grade or not, regardless of their grades. A standardized test should not be the reason a child gets left behind or not. Talk about low self esteem. I would like to challenge all these lawmakers to take these tests and see if they pass. I guarantee over 1/2 will not.
