First off, as you look at what goals within the education field will be most important for the future of education, I strongly see standardized testing as a prominent concern and goal. I feel that the goal should definitely be to prepare students effectively for end of the year tests that address state and national standards. However, I also don't want teachers to feel like they have to compromise creative, authentic, and engaging lessons in order to "teach to the test." Thus, a goal I would like to see is to emphasize testing in a holistic, real world, engaging, less stressful manner. Does that make sense to you?
Educational goals for the future in the field are briefly listed from a personal viewpoint.
