If High-Stakes Testing Went Away Tomorrow

You can say "high-stakes academic testing isn't going away," but the fact of the matter is that for everyone except the companies that profit (or non-profit) from it, the world would keep turning just fine. Maybe a little better in some ways, a little worse in others, but it wasn't all that long ago we barely had high stakes testing in our schools, you don't have to be very old to have experienced that, and as far as your average person can tell, schools weren't even that different.
