    Interesting video, Heather. I applaud the young man for speaking at his school board meeting. Lots of folks are too intimidated to do so. I agree with some of what he says, but other points I strongly disagree with. I’ll write you direct with some other thoughts. Thanks for starting the conversation.

      Thanks for your comment, Marsha. I’m looking at it as a mom whose kids’ school life now revolves around testing and the stress involved with that. The joy of learning seems to be fading, sadly. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
