Testing Culture?

But, I do ask teachers all the time, “why?” Why is this form of assessment important? Why is this assignment, project, book, test, chair, schedule, good for this student, or what this student needs? And I also ask, “is this worth the time you are investing in it?” How much of your day do you want to devote to law enforcement, or conflict, or teaching a particular form of etiquette? Are their better ways for you, and your students, to use your time?

An interesting & thought provoking post by Ira Socol. He asks some great questions in this excerpt. Read the entire post, how would you answer these questions?
