Monday Smile for the Day: A Modest Proposal

It is Monday and many of us begin working with our students this week (and some already are in the midst of their first few weeks of teaching). I think Monday could use something to lift our spirits, so I offer this article: http://www.livingstondaily.com/article/20130823/NEWS01/308230017/Bill-would-put-lawmakers-test.

Yes, let's make all legislators, school board members, and gravy train riders take the test. Not the test for 3rd grade, though. I think they need to take every single benchmark, practice, state, and PARCC and Smart-Balance assessment we give the kids at the topmost grade level plus the SAT or ACT. All scores get printed in the newspaper, tweeted, posted to Facebook, and broadcast on TV in rank order.

I AM SMILING NOW. Happy Monday, everyone!
