I agree with John Owens’ article, “School: Testing Mania Has Gone Too Far” [Anton Newspapers, June 21]. Continuous testing is turning off both students and teachers. Go back to basic goals: an informed citizenry with a moral compass and a skills oriented curriculum like BOCES offers. Then those who are truly academic will opt for college and those who aren’t will be our hairdressers, sales people, plumbers, electricians, etc.
