Is it time to start a nationwide boycott against all or most state standardized test? Standardized test can create a culture of fear for struggling students, overstretched teachers, and parents that can't help their children with the new more rigorous standards. 

Some politicians and corporations are benefiting from the Global Education Reform Movement (GERM) and are using the guise of teacher accountability to push their disingenuous agendas and increase their profits. We can create endless amounts of useless data and blame everyone except those in-charge or we can make new goals and objectives that grow critical thinking and creative learning.
