You have nailed it my friend! As a write this my family is being "bullied" by the school, telling us that we "can't" opt of the MEAP. I am in the process of finding out what my Rights are as a parent. I do not teach my children conformity just for conformity sake. This lines up perfectly with Josh McDowells book "The New Tolerance" it is a must read!

You're right: the MEAPs need to go. The state is monetarilly starving those districts that NEED the extra help, and the MEAPs themselves only teach our kids how to cram for a "fixed" test, while also losing out three or more weeks of LEARNING while they cram for and take these tests. The MEAPs are as evil as Granholm herself...both need to be abolished.
