State Testing

April is here and we are entering the most hectic time for students and teachers...state testing... 5th graders started with writing today and tomorrow...next week begins testing for 3rd through 6th graders... While I understand the need for testing I can not understand the undue pressure that is exacted on teachers and unconconciously passed on to students...Is there a way that testing can be done without the underlying threats...something to think about...
