Last week, I shared with you the disturbing stories of profoundly disabled children being asked to take standardized tests that defy common sense.
A tube-fed 10-year-old being asked questions about which fruit he would like to eat.
A 9-year-old blind boy being asked to identify a picture of a monkey.
The stories were as maddening as they were nonsensical.
These are kids struggling to do things like lift their arms or keep their gaze focused. Yet our test-obsessed education system required specialized teachers to spend as much as two week's time administering tests that had no relevance to these kids' lives.
That may soon change.
