Richard supplied me with great information!  I think we should fight for our children and get these people "that probably don't have any experience in education" to see the light.

By the way, they gave the students an additional 2 hours to complete the test.  I begged my son to take his time and if he needed until 5PM to complete the test, then by all means do so.  I told him to please read over the passages several times if it took that in order for him to understand.  I think I was more stressed than he was.  Anyway, I emailed his teacher to find out how long it took him to complete his test and she said he stayed until 3:10 PM to finish his test.  I was happy to hear that and I hope that he did well.  I will keep you posted.

Also, he was sick by the time I picked him up yesterday and I just know in my heart it had everything to do with that STUPID test!  As a result, he is at home with my mother today still trying to get well.  I felt so sorry for him and now that I think about it, he was showing signs of "going under" the day before the test and he is usually such a perky and happy child always.
