I have spoken with people working at insurance companies (State Farm, Farmer’s, Horace Mann), local bank/credit unions (IECU, US Bank, Marine) and State employees. It seems we all are working are tails off during this pandemic.
And, one of the things that we all have in common is kids. At the end of all this, we MUST re-examine why we test our students so much. It absolutely is not what is best for them or public education. REAL engaged learning (as we are all finding) is much more difficult to provide than standardized tests.
