Let's review. They're raising the cut scores on a test that's going away in order to prep people for the future horrors of a test not yet written, based on standards that will not fully filter through any given child's education program for a range of three to eight years.
Can anyone calculate the cost of all of this? Then multiply by the opportunity cost for a nation focused on the wrong things. Then raise that figure to the appropriate exponent for the damage incurred by all the resulting disinformation. When someone arrives at a figure, just write it on the coffin of our public education system.
