Why To Try On The CST

So the CSTs (California Standards Tests) are taking place next week in California schools, and while teachers are spending a crapload of time reviewing for them, many are having trouble motivating the students to care.

Johnny: “Why should I care about taking the CST? Does it even affect me?”
Teacher: “Well, no.”

Wrong answer.

Gotta tell the kids the truth.
