We can only build a love of learning if we stop the testing madness that has saturated education at the k-12 level. Go back to Dewey and read again his ideas on how children learn and are motivated. Progressive education has become a bad word. Every politician has become an expert on education. School has become an early version of work. I suggest we give every advocate of standardized learning and testing the very tests they advocate and when they fail require them to just shut up.
