We have not sung in some time, but now we are singing Revolution Rock.
After twelve years of oppression I told the M.A.’s I had had it, I would no longer test from a commercial testing bank, I would make my own examinations and peg them to national standards.
I said I was sure I was competent to do this, having done it for eighteen years before coming here.
I said I knew every expert and accreditation agency would support me, and that I was tired of pretending I did not have expertise just to be “fair.”
I said I would not surrender, and that I awaited them in my office if they wanted to take me out.
I gave my memo the avant-garde title “Manifesto With No Reverse Gear.”
I await them now.
