Making Teacher Cry

The continuing farce of pretending the schools can make people equal, giving tests to measure that goal (see Goodhart's law ), judging teachers by the results they obtain, and telling them not to “teach for the test” (which is either the old Mission: Impossible trick or a stunning inability to understand human nature) brings us a Great Moment in Emotional Manipulation.

Thanx to Charles P. Pierce.
