SOLs = blah

So the SOLs are FINALLY OVER!!  It only took 3 weeks!  My stomach hasn't been normal since the first one!  Now I can relax and so can the kids.  I think they did fairly well; I'm not counting my special ed kids.  I really don't think it's fair that they have to take a FIFTH GRADE SOL when they aren't even on level.  I mean, how can you expect a child who reads at a third grade level to PASS A FIFTH GRADE TEST?  That's just setting him or her up for failure.  If we have been differentiating all year long, then they should be taking a test that is on their level.  I totally don't understand how the education system works and I'm a teacher!

Enough said.
