I hear what you're saying Catherine. From my perspective, I see our beliefs about what education is, what it actually looks like, are the reasons why there's an emphasis placed on testing. It is a classic systems problem due to limiting beliefs or mental models.
While most people understand on some level that our education system is antiquated we have no shared vision, or mutual understanding of what we're working towards. I believe that until the fundamental principles of what education is change that everything else is just a band-aide to temporarily reduce the symptoms.
I definitely don't have the answers but I do want to encourage the conversation and challenge the norm as it now stands!
