Pennsylvania Standardized Tests Brought On Physical Complaints

The Harrisburg (PA) Patriot-News (4/29, Newhouse) reported, "Stress from standardized tests has brought on physical complaints among children in a least one" Pennsylvania school. At a Perry County school board meeting, Newport Elementary School principal Michael Smith said "that five children experienced nosebleeds during a recent week of the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment tests (PSSAs)," adding that "that some children were 'worked up to a point of nausea' and that there were frequent bathroom trips during the test."
