Leading When the King has no Clothes

Session 2
Douglas W. Green EdD — Binghamton University

Many sources tell us that the test culture propagated by NCLB legislation and the Race to the Top initiative is likely to have negative unintended consequences. Students are likely to find test prep boring and irrelevant. Teachers are likely to suffer moral problems as they compete with each other for good scores rather than collaborate. With a train wreck on the way, how do teachers and leaders avoid the worst and do what’s best for the students? The policy makers have created a new game. How do we successfully play this game so the students can prosper?

Conversational Practice

Key questions should get the conversation going. Something like: "So the tests are crap, What do we do to make sure the students don't suffer?"
