It's a Good Time for the Great Tests of McD.O.E.'s!

How much testing is too much testing?  At what point does testing become unhealthy, particularly for children?  And why don't the people who concoct these recipes for failure subject their own children to the same?  

Why do teachers differentiate instruction, making a menu with many flavors upon it, if testing is standardized, high-stakes style?  You definitely won't be having "it your way" at McD.O.E.'s.

When people's children are involved, why should the contents of the test be kept secret?  In the United States, grocery items and even fast-food items come with caloric counts and food-labeling information important to maintaining health and protecting the consumer.  Why should it be any different for the manufacturers of tests?  Shouldn't there be a Truth In Testing Act?  Don't we have a right to know what is being, so to speak, stuffed down the throats of our children?
