TC Weber is a parent blogger in Nashville. He writes here about the testing chaos in Tennessee.


When the contractor didn’t deliver the tests in time, testing was canceled. Then came part two, the tests were delayed again, but eventually many kids took the tests. Tennessee fired the contractor, forced students to take the tests, then gave Pearson a contract for $18.5 million just to score the tests.



Just for scoring tests! How great is that! Way to go, Pearson!


Maybe some of the details are wrong. Read TC’s post.


Bottom line: Tennessee is squandering millions of dollars for useless tests. Wake up! End the nightmare!
