Changes Ahead for the SAT, Students and Standardized Test Preparation

Depositphotos 60470681 s 2015 300x199 Changes Ahead for the SAT, Students and Standardized Test PreparationAs 2016 edges closer so does a change of seismic proportions for many high school students and parents. Rippling through lives of not only students and their parents, but also education professionals across the country, this change, of course, is the redesigned SAT that will be given for the first time this spring.

The SAT has gone through many changes in its time as the benchmark for entrance to colleges and universities.  However it’s popularity has been waning, and it’s mission blurred.  The SAT was initially developed to provide information about a student’s potential, or aptitude, as in the name Scholastic Aptitude Test.  Over the years, however, as scores reflect expensive test preparation and privilege, rather than natural abilities or educational background, many oppose the use of standardized tests as a bloated system requiring months of memorizing tricks and tips to get top scores.

Hardwood Stools Come to the Rescue!

Grandma Margaret's Hardwood Stool by the Parrot Cage

The Ultimate in Flexible Furniture

stoolsphoto 1 1 224x300 Hardwood Stools Come to the Rescue!

So I’m just a grandma who retired in 2012 and downsized to a one-bedroom condo. But with eight grand-kids, I knew that I would often need extra seating available, but not big chairs that would take up a lot of space when not in use. As always, I began my search online and ended up at Hertz Furniture. What better idea than sturdy stools that are made to endure the abuse of school children day after day, year after year? I decided to order five of the hardwood stools.

 

Fast forward two years and we are once again preparing for another Thanksgiving dinner. Along with the regular dining chairs and a couple desk chairs, the five stools complete our seating requirements.
