I once sat in a masters for educational psychology class on advanced computer models used to validate the efficacy of the SAT test. Well, a lot of money and time are spent every year to make sure people understand that the SAT is the exam to measure how well kids will do in college.
Well, somehow I don’t think things are that simple. Even the professor explaining the models knew this! Well, needless to day, I never enrolled in the program or embarked on the career.. even though it was an interesting area of study.
Just watching my son — a three years old learn, I just know that learning is a natural process.. the outcomes often can not be measured..
yet we try!
Nowadays, the homeschool alternatives are more attractive to parents by the day.
Thanks for this article, very well argued!
