The paper discusses how high stakes testing is applied in schools across the country and requires that all students meet certain minimal standards in order to pass to the next grade level or be allowed to graduate. This paper focuses on the methodology of high stakes testing, its impact and its effectiveness and concludes that this method of testing is not only necessary but requisite in our nation's educational system.

From the Paper:

"During his campaign for the Presidency, then Governor of Texas George W. Bush advocated for sweeping and meaningful education reform. He consistently highlighted the need for standards to be applied uniform in order to remove what he termed "the soft bigotry of low expectations". After winning the 2000 Presidential Election, President Bush pushed for and signed into law the "No Child Left Behind" bill which called for standardized testing to be used as a measure of student academic performance."
