In this day and age, for any “state” to give secret, mandated, tests to any of its people should be deemed unjust and flatly unacceptable. But in the United States of America this should create an outcry from every citizen. Tests that are not optional, do not involve the local school of a people, and use questions designed for certain minds, should not be stood for by any free thinking citizen in the United States. And further, the fact that mandated tests have been secretly created, kept secret from its citizens, and have a secretive grade determination, in one of the highest regarded states and leaders of public education¸ should be frightening to all residents of NY State.
