Stop the PATs. All they attempt to do is evaluate teachers. They have no relevance in the classroom, in the news, in the Fraser Report.
They are a glimpse into a student’s learning. They are not reflective of special needs. They are nothing but a student stress inducing mechanism. They do not indicate a students comprehension of the entire curriculum.
Get real government, walk a mile in a teacher’s shoes, spend a month in their classroom. They do not reflect a student’s academic level. Trust teachers to evaluate their students, not PATs.
