All kids are different,

so why do we try,

to give and implement,

standardized tests that close the mind.

 

From the MCA's to the ACT's,

from statewide to nationwide communities,

filling in bubbles doesn't show that you're smart,

it shows that teens today lack creativity and art.

 

A few times a year,

students stress and fear,

because the administration tells us lies upon lies,

that these multiple choice tests affect the happiness of our lives.

 

From the MCA's to the ACT's,

from statewide to nationwide communities,

filling in bubbles doesn't show that you're smart,

it shows that teens today lack creativity and art.

 

The company,

that makes these tests mandatory,

is the same company,

who profits off of this standardizing monstrosity.

 

From the MCA's to the ACT's,

from statewide to nationwide communities,

filling in bubbles doesn't show that you're smart,

it shows that teens today lack creativity and art.

 

These standardized tests,

don't separate the best,

coming from me and the rest of the Midwest,

these self esteem reducing tests deserve the grade of an F.

 

From the MCA's to the ACT's,

from statewide to nationwide communities,

filling in bubbles doesn't show that you're smart,

it shows that teens today lack creativity and art.

 

So dont let these monsters,

turn you into numbers,

you are talented and unique,

that's something standardized tests cannot see.

 

From the MCA's to the ACT's,

from statewide to nationwide communities,

filling in bubbles doesn't show that you're smart,

it shows that teens today lack creativity and art.
