Is standardized testing in public schools even helpful?

Sophia Stevens thinks not. What started out as just a joke, the 13-year-old NYS public school student showcases her belief that standardized testing is impractical and shows you nothing about the character or value of a student. She would know; she’s taken an insane amount of these standardized tests. She says that these standardized tests only usually work with how well a student’s memory is. She claims “…what happens if a kid is just having a bad day? You would only see that one test and and think he was an unsatisfactory pupil.”

My Storify sums up the story pretty easily and shows that this is not only a problem in New York State but in other states as well. Thank you, Sophia. Your intelligence will take you far. Revolution, here we come.
