RRalph Ratto is an elementary school teacher in New York. He describes yesterday as “one of the darkest days in education.” Testing started yesterday. Now that the tests are untied, some children will struggle for six hours a day for six days to satisfy some adult idea of comparison.  Their ordeal has nothing to do with education.” He says: “Folks, this is institutional child abuse! I have written about this and about how this is the time of year that I am ashamed to be a teacher. We all should be ashamed, when we make these children take these tests to fulfill a political agenda and provide absolutely no valid data that helps children excel.”
