USA: resistência à “teste-mania” só aumenta

Quem acha que resistir ao uso despropositado e às vezes danoso dos testes padronizados é coisa de “pedagogos” ou “teóricos de universidade” ou “ativistas de esquerda” deveria ficar atento ao que ocorre neste momento dentro dos Estados Unidos.

O National Center for Fair and Open Testing, destinado a denunciar e combater o mau uso de testes padronizados envia um email com uma lista semanal de histórias de todos os estados americanos onde acontece esta resistência cotidiana. E ela só cresce.

Aqui está o link para os interessados em receber a lista e abaixo a lista de resistência da semana.
