Tic Tok Tic Tok Tic..... The clock on the wall is the only sound. Severe punishments for those roaming the hallways. Signs up all over the walls telling you to "DO BETTER!" T E S T I N G! No talking, pure silence! Then the students are rounded up like cattle, lined up SILENTLY (God forbid children act like children.) and marched outside to an exercise yard to walk around a track in the bitter cold! Not even aloud to go get jackets! Then it's back inside to do more work! IT'S MORE LIKE BEING IN A WAR CAMP!
It sneaks up on teachers and students like a snake! Working all year just to get ready and there are still always things they don't know! Sure the students benefit somewhat from "No Child Left Behind" but the teachers could loose their jobs!
There is WAAAY to much pressure put on testing! They tell students that their future DEPENDS on this paper booklet!
