It’s that time of year again: Kids are sitting down to take state tests that decide how schools are graded under No Child Left Behind. I want to hear from you about how the annual rush of filling in bubbles has affected your family or your school. How does it change what happens at class or at home? How do your children feel about the tests? And are you pulling your kids out of testing? Please let me know!

Please contact Emily Alpert directly at or 619.550.5665 and follow her on Twitter:
