Please Raise Your Hand and Repeat After Me

Over at Prichard, Susan posted "The Learning Pledge" penned by the Kentucky Association of Assessment Coordinators. The pledge is intended to address "concerns about the testing transition and its instructional implications."

Teachers are asked to "proclaim and steadfastly adhere to" the pledge of learning.

Regardless of test measures, instruments, or accountability features I will provide each individual child with the highest level educational opportunity possible.
And will
  • Teach all core subjects whether they are tested or not.
  • Provide authentic writing instruction while compiling student work.
  • Be held accountable whether there is an accountability system or not.
