Like many music, art and special area teachers, testing has continued to eat away at the time I have with my students. They are pulled out of my class for tests in math, ELA and Reading and many students take one less class in music or art because they are receiving “special” tutoring to prepare for math and reading tests. What ever happened to creating well-rounded individuals? Now we seem satisfied with creating test taking robots.
