The question on the table: How are we, as Educators, going to "measure up" and use Standardized Testing (or not) in a way that does not affect our kids for years to come and traumatize them even more then they have been already this year? Tests are standardized but kids aren't.

Mentorships in Education is brought to you by Just Education, LLC and is hosted by Judith Epstein. Judi has a Master's degree in Education with a concentration in Language Acquisition. She is certified in special education with post-graduate coursework and professional development in Cognitive Behavior therapy (CBT), Social Thinking, Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
