Okay, the truth is, I never expected that everyone would say, “YES!” when I asked if it was a “bad idea” to avoid tests in homeschool. What I meant by my question was, “Please write in and tell me that my kids are so lucky to have me as a mother.”
Next time I will try to be clearer.
My last post was the most commented upon post thus far. Only a few commented on line, but many others wrote me email. And the verdict was unanimous: Not giving tests is a bad idea. I should help the boys get ready for tests, give them an opportunity to show what they know, and teach them that tests are not all that scary.Before I respond, I want to do a bit of research (which, to be fair, will probably be a brief Google search). I also want to give those of you who support me, I mean support the idea not testing, a chance to weigh in.
