Dear students of Common Core testing…

Posted on Communication, General, Parenting, Stress April 24, 2015 by Mary George

As our children embark upon the testing of skills that our states place upon them next week, perspective is important  – for them, for us and for the thousands of educators that do their best to prepare them for these tests. Below is a letter that a teacher gave to her students last week giving them just that, perspective. While this letter was actually written in 1999 by another teacher, its relevance still rings true. Read it to your children and remind them what is really important.
