From Homeschooler, to Public Schooler

The Adventures of being a "homeschooler" in a Public School.

TCAP

on March 9, 2013

TCAP is a standardized test to predict what classes you will be put in the following year, kids in grades 3-8 participate in TCAP testing once a year. It has to be one of the most strict and boring tests I have ever had a part in. From 8:10 to 11:00 AM the students are not allowed to talk or leave their seats without proper clearance from the teacher. If you need a pencil, you have to raise your hand and wait for the teacher to come over and retrieve it for you. If do as much as tap your pencil against your desk, you will get an office referral and a call home will be made. There is absolutely no trust between teachers and students, and quite frankly I don’t blame the teachers not trusting the students because some of these kids are crazy.
