In lieu of an abstract, here is the article's first paragraph:
In New York State, one of the most contentious issues- even outside of education circlesis the overwhelming nature of student testing today. Teacher and administrator energies are focused on testing and test-taking at the expense of authentic instruction. In fact, the consequences of current testing in our schools resulted in an estimated 165,000 students opting out of this year’s standardized tests. Many educators continue to question the Common Core curriculum. Teachers are being asked to do more and deliver in ways that are industrializing our schools. Principals are faced with policies that make it difficult to foster a culture of learning and growing. Emotions and emotional reactions are overtaking the schoolhouse and the social landscape. This is an opportune time for the use of emotional intelligence (EI) in education.
