If you can read and comment on this, you have passed many test while at school.  However sadly, there are many students who could not follow this text, comprehend it and or comment on it and we know this because we gave them test and they couldn’t do it.  Lately, the powers that be have used test to hold teachers, schools and districts accountable.
