Did standardized testing have any influence in your choice to homeschool?
It does mine. I don't want my daughter or any future kids spending what seems like half the school year learning how to take an end of year LEAP, Iowa or CAT test. (Those are what I think I remember taking when I was in school.)
I want my child's education to focus more on how to learn and actually enjoying their education, not on how to properly answer questions on an exam to make the school district look good.
Am I off base here on this?
