    Default Pearson does it again - and we thought their testing was bad here!

    I saw this article in BBC, and when I saw the testing company was Pearson, had to laugh. I'm not sure if it's the same as here, but I'd like to blame them for everything.

    The native speaker with college degrees doesn't pass the test as being fluent in English... smh.

    Stahhhp. You're making me want to put my kids in public school. Standardized testing FTW.
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at TheHomeschoolResourceRoom.com.
