Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, July 15, 2014 9:20 AM

I saw this courtesy of Colum McAndrew.  Oh, I really hope that more educators in the US get this message, because this is the message that we need to give our kids. My son is learning different, so he doesn't usually do well in standardized tests, even though certain allowances are made (like extra time, etc.) so he can try to complete them. He's actually a rather bright boy, and he has rather low self-esteem, so I'm constantly trying to remind him that he's more than a test (just like adults are more than their resumes).  I, too, didn't do well in standardized tests as a kid, yet I did well enough in school. (Never took the GRE for grad school, yet had a 4.0 GPA, which should say something!) 

 

US education system--please wake up, and read this, and learn from it! We need to bring up kids who are more confident in whatever skills they have, even if they are not measurable or conventional.
