If the teachers have a better way to teach our children, prove it. Put together a method of showing children are progressing and teachers are teaching without using standardized tests.

If there is no method in place to measure improvement, schools will coast along and crank out more children without an education. There has to be some method to show accountability.

Put one on the table. Be prepared for plenty of criticism. Everyone will find fault with it.

Mr. Schalk did the teachers a great service by reminding them of the law. Training is never a bad thing. If it keeps one teacher from making a mistake, it was well worth the time he and the teachers spent.
