is TAKS nearing an end?

State lawmakers are reportedly “considering a plan to abolish the high-stakes TAKS exams in high school — but standardized tests are not going away.”

That can only be good news… to an extent. Under the proposed legislation, the tradeoff would be that students would actually have to take more tests than they do right now.

Hmmm… does that make sense? I’m not a teacher, but it doesn’t sound right to me.
