    Get over yourself. If you cannot get involved in a political debate over the internet without becoming hysterical, you're the one who needs the dog.

    Standardized testing makes teachers so 1 dimensional. They teach to the test and not the full material. They need to be given the freedom to teach the subject how the would like to and then be evaluated by the individual school. That is why Private Schools are generally better educations, because they do not have to have standardized testing.

    Why would you expect a decrease in some people's education?
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    This is not an argument, it's a collection of socialist slogans.

    You talked as if you know how teaching actually works. How much experience do you have in the classroom?
