"Everybody gets tested on the same standards. It's just not fair"
--A fourth-grade teacher, quoted in an article on the "unfairness" of Common Core reading standards.
"We take the test to see how teachers have teached their kids, like if they've teached them nothing and they don't know any answers, teachers get rated and they might get fired because they might not be doing their job...It's creepy because you try your best, but some kids just can't learn, and a teacher will get fired because of those kids."
--A ten-year-old student quoted in the same article.
The first quote struck me as an eyeroll-inducing example of ed-school doublespeak; the second quote, on the other hand, explained the "unfairness" angle clearly.
I think I'd like to see more ten-year-olds writing about education.
