I put the picture above on our Facebook page last night. The problem is how ACT wants to develop and implement career tests for kindergarteners and third graders. Here’s the caption I used:
ACT has developed a career test for third graders -http://bit.ly/OaiZOQ and next they want to develop one for kindergartners – http://huff.to/NI3GkK we should be inspiring kids, not pegging them for a particular career.
We must speak out against this.
