Damn Kids

Tomorrow Utah schools begin their CRT testing. You know, the "oh my God, children really aren't the future" tests. All of the teachers I know have spent the weekend thinking up pep talks, or making funny little signs for their classrooms letting them know they support them, and that doing poorly on these tests means a lifetime of misery and fast food jobs. Oh, and every school has a sign out in front letting parents know the testing will be going on, so they can make sure their kids have a good breakfast, and stress them out at the end of the day by asking how they think they did.

Some of those signs have movable type...


At least they spelled all the words right. They should get points for that, right?

Frankly knowing the differences between STDs is far more useful than what they get out of those pointless tests. No child left behind, my ass.

Oh, the irony. So I guess if it's the Clap, you move on to burger flipping?

Bwahahahaha! Fantastic. My word verification is "dical."

Thank goodness I never had an STD to test.

Ahhhhh.....the beauty of testing. My son's school went through the CAP testing nonsense last month.

Great way to lose days from school.

But...but...but...butt, it's good to know beforehand what an STD is, right?

Word verification is "whone"

What? We are supposed to be preparing the students for these tests?? Oh sh*t!

Hee hee!

Ours are next week. I think we'd have a better chance at passing STD tests though. At least in the 5th grade.

My guess would be that there will be some kids skipping school on STD test day.

Kim said...

In the South we start STD tests in grade school.

Summer said...

Oh, for the love of fruit. That's priceless.

Finally. Something I'd pass.

They test for stuttering?

Sex? Mom, of course I've been having sex! And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those ruddy tests.
