Get rid of standardized testing

Standardized testing is a big problem within our school system. They cause unnecessary stress from a young age. The stress continues and only gets worse as we get older and those tests start to carry more weight, and start to matter more. The stress causes us to lose sleep and actually do worse on the test. We aren't remembering what we are learning because teachers are "teaching to the test". They are teaching us to memorize the information not to actually grow in our knowledge and education. Other countries that use performance based scoring for their students, such as essays and projects instead of tests, actually score better on international assessments. To conclude, standardized testing is a huge issue and needs to be taken out of our schools.
