How do students measure up?

DailyShoot: Backgrounds are tricky. They can make a subject stand out or distract from it. Make a photo with a good background today.


I chose this background because it reminds me of the "bubble items" on state tests. The blank student represents the individuality and creativity that is stripped from our classrooms due to state testing constraints. A faceless student, forced to measure up to a goal set by someone who doesn't even "see" them for who or what they really are. **Not looking to argue the point of state testing, just how I feel every March when life is sucked from the classroom as booklets are distributed. :)
