Standardised testing – great story from New York

Image from

I really enjoyed this story about a story by Daniel Pinkwater which was used on the New York State Test which primary school children sat.  As New Zealand now has National Standards this story resonates!

Shared on Facebook by Support School Libraries.  They post lots of interesting links on there and if you are interested in advocacy in school libraries you will find good stuff there (not all of which is relevant to us, but some is).
