Ã¢â‚¬ËœMiddle School SyndromeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Undergoes a Reversal – New York Times:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“There are superintendents who want to avoid teaching to the test,Ã¢â‚¬Â Dr. Lodovico said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I say, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to provide the kind of instruction that the state standards want us to provide. If that is teaching to the tests, so be it.Ã¢â‚¬Â
and this is why the students might be able to take a test, but not be considered learned, or otherwise educated. teaching to the test is to teach failure in everything other than the test.
