"Roses are red,
Chrome books are grey,
Taking the PARCC test
has ruined my day."

This spring, more than a million American students are being subjected to experimental field tests devised by the federally funded testing consortium called PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers). The consortium received $186 million through Race to the Top to develop nationalized assessments tied to the top-down Common Core scheme. While thousands of parents are exercising their rights to pull their kids from the classroom in protest against the testing tyrants, many more kids are stuck.

And they’re tweeting about it. Here’s what the children are saying:

And now it’s off to a miserable, Michelle Obama-approved, federally dictated lunch. Good luck, kids.
