You Can Blame Me for My Students’ Standardized Test Scores

 

testing-pressure

On Tuesday my students begin their arduous week long testing regime. I hope they do well, but if they don’t you can pin the blame on me.

 

And while you’re at it …

 

  • You can blame me for running a happy and vibrant classroom
  • You can blame me for teaching to the curriculum instead of the test
  • You can blame me for challenging the achievers and assisting the strugglers
  • You can blame me for replacing any hint of bullying with unity and comoraderie
  • You can blame me for turning pressure and anxiety into confidence and determination
  • You can blame me for putting learning into perspective
  • You can blame me for regarding character and values as more important than test scores

 

So go ahead. Blame away!
