So this week on May 7th I interviewed a young student at Olentangy Orange highschool named Carson Briggs. He is currently in 9th grade and is in the amidst of taking the PARRC tests.
interviewer: So Carson are these PARRC test improving your education?
Carson: No! These test are not improving my overall education and they’re just adding more stress to my everyday life.
Interviewer: So what do you believe needs to be done?
Carson: I believe these tests should not be given to students. They are not helping us and are just creating a generation of kids that only know how to pass a test and have no real world applications.
Interviewer: Well thank you for this information..
