All of these reports about the “opt-out movement”—where parents choose not to have their children take the federally mandated standardized tests—are a bit disturbing. The debate seems to have spiraled out of control. We all seem caught in a polarized narrative, a kind of hopeless argument that has more to do with some of the inherent philosophical tensions of modern life than it does with issues of education. Big questions just like the one’s we’re grappling with when it comes to standardized testing actually appear in many areas of our modern lives.
