Report from a Clayton County Teacher
“Yesterday, before and after testing, a colleague who is a first year third grade teacher lost her damn mind. She assaulted a third grade student of hers and told him he was dumb, shouldn’t have been in the room testing because he was going to bring her scores down. She berated him and the class telling them they were going to cause her to lose her certification.
This young first year teacher said, “Unless they have $50,000 to pay for her teaching certificate, they had better score well.”
She was furious 50% of her evaluation was dependent on “stupid third graders”.
The boy was reduced to tears and promptly vomited all over the floor.
Her colleagues refused to report the unprofessional, abusive, and vicious behavior yesterday.
This test… Georgia Milestones… is destroying our kids”.
This System is Breaking Kids and Teachers
It sure is.
As an E D U C A T O R and P A R E N T…
I. Refuse. To. Be. Silent.
Shame on the U.S. Department of Education
Shame on all legislators who continue to vote for this abuse.
Shame on any educator at any level who believes these tests are valid.
Shame on School Boards at the local and state levels who promote these tests.
Shame on all the lies and propaganda and rhetoric being spread and paid for by the corrupt Oligarchy.
Teachers are being forced to give these tests to children who are not ready. Teachers know the students do not understand the skills or concepts, yet are forced to deliver these outrageous assessments. Teachers are being told it is their fault if their students don’t meet the standard. (Flawed standards). Teachers lose their jobs when their evaluations are based on these tests… tests with reading levels above the children’s grade assignment and questions demanding high levels of analysis.
These tests put everyone involved in the pressure cooker.
Eventually an explosion happens.
No Teacher Should Feel Pressed to this Point of Breaking
“Parents MUST BE THE ONES to make this testing stop. Teachers cannot control this. I 100% in no way condone the actions, words, etc of this teacher, but I can tell you I understand the PLACE she was pushed to and that is not within her control. How she handles the weight is certainly something she has to work on, but these teachers need parents advocating, demanding, and speaking up… ‘We won’t stand for our children or teachers to be put through this abuse’!” –Georgia Parent of a 4th Grader
The Testing Bomb
Who built this Testing Bomb?
Who placed the Bomb in our schools?
Who asked teachers to hold the Bomb?
If the Bomb goes off, who is to blame?
