Why does NC require me to spend my own money testing my kid?

July 17th, 2009 at 06:15 pm

Why do I have to shell out $50-$100 of my own money on top of the tax money sent to test other kids?

If the gov't is so all fired curious just where my kid falls compared to average 7 year olds why don't they test him?

They do have these days set up for just such a purpose in the public school year, which my tax dollars fund not only the electricity, the supervision, and the grading, but also the salary of the person who decides what to do with the scores.

But will they share any of that tax funded time/space/grading with me? nope, require me to do it, but not one ounce of assistance for the process.

Not that I want gov't interference, just that I wish they would keep their grubby noses out of my business when all they want me to do is spend money.

    Do they mandate which test you must use? Give a selection of choices? Just mandate that it must be nationally normed? If the third, see if Sylvan still offers free online testing. We used it 11 years ago.

    Can't you see if your kids can be tested with the public school kids when the tests are administered?
