America is land of the many brave men and woman who had to fight for the freedom of our country America is what it is today for the actions of those in the past because of them we are considered one of the most valuable countries on the planet America is excellent in many of the programs that it has created and implemented for our country but one thing it has failed to do is to create an equal and fair learning and testing environment for its students According to the Broad of Education After World War II the United States had the 1 high school graduation rate in the world Today it has dropped to 22 among 27 industrialized nations American students now rank 25th in math 17th in science and 14th in reading compared to students in 27 industrialized countries So why now has this country dropped so much Well this is because of the decisions that our country has made on implementing reform programs for schools These reform programs consist of using standardized testing as a way of measuring a childs intelligence on mainly two subjects English Language Arts and Math This test is unfair to students who are not proficient in those subjects and receive a low test score This harms the students psychologically by telling them that they have scored average or below average when in reality they are proficient in subjects or activities outside of those that are being tested So now lets not break traditions lets be brave and fight for what deserves to be fought for and bring change to our students so they too can succeed and prosper in this country The problem with standardized testing is that it only measures a very small fraction of what makes education meaningful Valerie Strauss emphasizes the importance of this matter by exemplifying Gerald Braceys conclusion in her article Bracey having his doctoral degree in developmental psychology
