PLN 6

In “We’re Not Merely Wasting Talent. We’re Poisoning It!” by David Warlick, the author talks about how many successful, somewhat famous people did badly in school. He goes on to say that now if a student does badly on a test the repercussions will be worse than they would have been ten to twenty years ago, regardless of any talents. David also points out that talents ignored by high stakes testing are ones that are important in real life. What matters to me in this article is that school is supposed to help us, yet some people do badly in school and still become successful. What does this mean for people that do well in school? We should reform schools into a place where important talents are what are taught. This is what matters to me in David Warlick’s “We’re Not Merely Wasting Talent. We’re Poisoning It!”
