However, this quote is, “Becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable.” In the last question, I asked my interviewee to describe a memory when they felt like people in your school were being racist to you. She responded that at the end of the school day, after the bell rang, people would yell slanderous remarks about her race.

I felt bad for her because he was try and she just couldn 't do anything she would get really bad headaches from writing a little paragraph and it would take her like an hour. When she was at the dinner were her mom works to Bullies from school came up to her and started talking to her nice in the beginning and then they wanted her to read them the names of ice cream. The kids are trying to figure out if she can read because she never does anything in school. That made me feel bad for he because she had no friends to try to make her feel better so she was just sad for a while.
All this joyful news of how standardized testing supposedly creates miracles of our knowledge, increasing student achievement, may be proven wrong or right, but that is not our deepest concerns. A student’s mental/physical health and future as an authentic learner is most at risk here. No matter how many cries from multiple students are heard, they continue to be silenced. Simply put, all standardized testing should be abolished for they are hurting students both in and out of classrooms. As students we deserve the ability to access authentic learning, however, with standardized testing heavily relied on, students are deprived of this interaction.

When I was in English class in 8th grade, our teacher performed a test on us, which we were unaware of until it was over. During class the teacher began to berate a student, calling the student unintelligent and lazy. This was a student that other people may have viewed as “unmotivated” or a “burnout” when she was in fact, very intelligent. But because she was commonly stereotyped, the teacher began to pick on this student. The student was well aware that the teacher was doing this as an experiment in her class.
