Unmeasured and whole

If you are not required by law to test your child, don't choose it.

Because a test score is never ignored, tests affect the relationship between parent and child, and many unschoolers want to preserve their child’s journey to adulthood unmeasured, uncompared, and whole. It might seem crazy from the outside, but the disadvantage of testing is real.

  1. I like this. I was asked recently (by the person who had my IQ tested) what my kid's IQ was. I suspect my disdain showed in my answer that I neither know nor care what my kids' IQs are. How would that improve the quality of our lives? It certainly didn't improve my life as a girl.
