Starve the Data Beast! An Anti-Common Core Rap

Starve the Data Beast

Children cry while testers feast
If you want to save our schools
STARVE THE DATA BEAST
First Pearson tests for data
Then In Bloom sells it
There’s a stench of corruption
CAN’T YOU JUST SMELL IT!
So when testing comes
Opt your children out
Refuse the tests
So there will be no doubt
That teachers can teach
And children can learn
And as for the tests
PERHAPS THEY SHOULD BURN!
