Dose Standerized testing improve education?

. Doesn't teach any thing just wastes time.

. It feels like a punishment to some teachers and students.

Not Clearly Pro or Con

Barack Obama, Is Not Clearly Pro or Con But he leans more to CON then PRO with his statement

at the bottom.


Obama Says: ''So what I want to do is — one thing I never want to see happen is schools that are just teaching to the test. Because then you’re not learning about the world; you’re not learning about different cultures, you’re not learning about science, you’re not earning about math. All you’re learning about is how to fill out a little bubble on an exam and the little tricks that you need to do in order to take a test."(http://www.procon.org/ )

Pro

Mitt Romney Says: “We looked at what drives good education in our state, what we found is the best thing for education is great teachers, hire the very best and brightest to be teachers, pay them properly, make sure that you have school choice, test your kids to see if they are meeting the standards that need to be met."(http://www.procon.org/)
