STAAR is a stupid idea that will make Texas look like a state full of dumb students! If you want students to pass this test, one mock test isn't going to help. Some teachers don't even go ever the material that is on the test! If I was in charge, I'd completely eliminate STAAR and make a test not only for the state but that will benefit every student! Better yet, I'm going to do something about this!
