Tests wear me out

Mind you, I'm not taking the test-- the kids at my school are. Or they are supposed to be taking the tests. Stanford 10. Luckily, these tests are timed rather than the TAKS where the kids can take all freaking day. A few of the kids understand the concept of timed tests and not going back and changing answers or completing another section they didn't get to finish before. Sometimes I wonder if some of these kids have lived their entire lives in the woods and this is their first experience with formal education.

Maybe I'm too hard on them. Maybe they're just like Nell.

Then again, maybe they're not. Maybe they've previously gotten away with arguing with the person giving the test...
