Madeline is taking the NJ ASK test in school this week. Her class has been gearing up to take this test for the past four months. The first test was language arts. On this test, Madeline was required to write a short essay talking about a place she has been that looked nice but wasn't somewhere she wanted to stay. My child, decided to write about her school and name it specifically. The decided to detail her first day of school and label that teacher as unwelcoming. Her second grade teacher, who we love, was in the room when Madeline was writing it and she read what my child wrote and whispered to her sister [Madeline's current teacher] that she doesn't think Madeline likes them.
I am in a state of disbelief. Did my child really badmouth her school and name it on the state test? And to top it off, she's proud of herself for having done so. Oh well, someone out there will find out that this school that this National School of Character really cranks out the characters.
