Stupid Schools, Stupid Students: Get Smart is full of examples of the horrible, yet laughable writing submitted by college students in college level English classes. Along with the decidedly non- academic work, the author builds a case against the ever increasing dependence on standardized tests in public schools across the U.S. The examples herein show the results of blind reliance on these tests that are supposed to raise academic standards and hold students, teachers and schools accountable for academic improvement. While most educators complain about the negative aspects of high-stakes testing there have only been a few, mostly unsuccessful, attempts to change course. Providing some background on the public education system in America and offering ideas about how to develop a higher standard of academics, the author demonstrates that standardized tests fail to teach students to think.
