A glaring example of misplaced priorities….

For two days next week, a teacher I work with has been assigned to proctor a test in the media center, so a sub has been scheduled to be in her classroom.

The state of Florida seems to think it is more important for a certified teacher to be proctoring this test than it is for this certified teacher to be in her classroom teaching her students.

This doesn’t seem like a very effective way of educating children.

I’ll give the state the benefit of the doubt and assume that the desire to have tests proctored by certified teachers was well-intentioned. However, this leads to the comically embarrassing outcome of pulling teachers out of class to watch students take standardized tests, creating their own real-life satire of contemporary K-12 education.
