In today’s edition of the Heartland Daily Podcast, we listen in to Terry James Radio Show where Heartland Project Manager for Education joins the show to talk about the Illinois State Board of Education’s decision to drop PARCC testing for high school.
Jarratt explains why this decision to replace PARCC testing with SAT tests is really a step sideways instead of a step forward due to the fact that SAT is fully aligned to Common Core. He also discusses how mandating a single test creates an environment of teaching to the test instead of truly focusing on education and testing knowledge.
