On this episode, have you ever wondered why your kids are forced to do the end of school year testing? That’s what we’re going to reveal on this week's episode. The truth about school testing and what you can do to empower yourself and your kids.
The end of the school year testing always come at the end of the year and are called different things. There is only one reason that they make kids take that test: that reason is money. School funding. It is not related to your child's education in any way. The higher the overall test scores for the school, the higher ths funding. That's why schools teach to the test to up their scores.
Each child is individual. They learn and grow in different ways. They don't need to pressure to conform to and perform for these tests. You must know, you are NOT obligated to take these tests. You can request to have your child excused. No excuses.
If you have kids who are struggling in school, take that pressure off of them and let them know that you'll take care of it and get them out of the testing.
