The SAT teaches kids to view reading as a meaningless assignment rather than a source of ideas or inspiration.
Time to Ditch the SAT
The ACT/SAT sounds much better than that [brain processing scores].
AP Exam scores were studied by the College Board and proven to be a good predictor of success at the college level, so maybe there should be a charge to offer a more basic version.
If SAT/ACT is ditched, what's the alternative?
Across the country, students practice for and take the SAT rather than read books in their entirety, play musical instruments, spend time with friends or family, work, learn foreign languages, write poems or play sports. Because of the test's high stakes, schools will gear their entire literacy curriculum around preparing for the test.
