Cuomo Says CCSS Tests Won't Count For Students, But Will Count For Teachers

From State of Politics:

In a Capital Tonight interview on Tuesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide Larry Schwartz said overhauling the implementation of the standards will be part of those budget talks.
“Why not? Why shouldn’t it be part of the budget? Why shouldn’t we let students in New York state and their parents know ASAP — as soon as possible — that we’re going to reduce the amount of testings for our kids. We’re going to make sure that these tests that are going to be given in April don’t count against our kids.”

If the governor gets his way, those tests will still count for teacher evaluations.

That should make for a wonderful evaluation tool - tests that don't count for students but do count for teachers and schools.

Dunno about you, but that sounds ripe to me for a lawsuit.

How fair can any so-called test be when the people taking the test do not have much of a stake in it but their teachers have their jobs on the line with the scores?

  1. This is likely to devolve into a total clusterfuck, and while I'd much prefer that an educated, organized and mobilized teacher corps fight and defeat this head on, I'll settle for it just falling apart and being recognized as an embarrassing failure.

    At a certain point, everyone supporting this is going to realize it's a dog, and feel the need to distance themselves from it, no matter how much money Old Pasty Face (Gates) puts into it.

  3. Then, why bother TESTING the students at all, if the results DON'T count for the students?

    More and more, I'm really starting to believe what my father used to say about our useless politicians and their policies: "Were they dropped on their heads as children?".....

    1. Whether they were dropped on their heads or just act like they were, they're very very dangerous, that's for sure.
