A moratorium on linking CCLS testing to teacher evals will not change the fact high-stakes tests should never be mandated on schools.

The problem is not tying teacher evaluations to test scores.
The problem is the mandating of standardized tests onto schools by the federal and state governments.
It leads to the culture of quantification - only what can be measured is valued.
Experience tells me that it is more often what cannot be measured that is most valuable - love, compassion, empathy.
