I have looked again at my posting on the national standards and I don't
see the aggression or the personal attack. I enjoy a rousing debate and
think debate is healthy as long as we stick with issues and ideas and
avoid personal attack. I am sorry that you thought my difference of
opinion diminished you personally. When you feel strongly and speak
out, you will have many people who agree with you and many who don't.
This is as it should be. I look forward to debating with you again . You
put forward a good arguement...well thought out and well spoken!

We are in aggreement on one point. I am not fond of the national
assessment methods currently used. No child should have to sit for
hours, day in and out tensely scribbling in those little ovals. Later
when we assess the results we find that the students usually know the
material and miss understand the questions.

My arguement is for the standards. The jury is still out on the test.
