I was able to enjoy a bit of peace, and get a couple things done. But after talking to the kids after they came home, one did average stuff, but the oldest, they spent all day taking practice tests so that they will be ready to take the real achievement tests at the end of the week. She got a note sent home with her saying they will be preparing for these tests all week… Um… Why cram for the test for the 3 days right before??? Why not just teach it all to them all year long! Yet another reason to detest this school system. What did she learn in school today?? Nothing, all they did was practice tests.. Can you say waste of time?
