If they teach to the test, at least the kids are learning what's on the test! It's better than nothing!

If you had read the tests (at least the released test questions for all the grades) I’m not sure you would make that comment.

Umm, it IS nothing. I've administered those tests when we homeschooled and they're pathetically easy. Some of the questions are written so that guessing is the only way to get them wrong.

And even if all the kid did was answer *C* for the multiple choice, he'd get 25% for that section.
