Children are constantly stressed about these crazy amounts of tests we take each year. Not only students but Teachers too. The district constantly on their ass about having the highest scores. I understand that it's important to be the number one school, but do they even think about us kids? We take test after test after test. It's very tiring and stressful and only to prove what? School doesn't even teach about real life! We should be learning how to protect ourselves and things to do when survival is needed. What about that? Kids only have a break for 2 months and then it's back to taking a shit ton of tests. We should focus on other things such as how to protect ourselves. And really all i'm asking is just to calm down with the tests, it's tiring and stressful. School should be a place where students are able to express themselves and be happy. Not dreaded by going everyday.
