    Some Detroit-area schools are considering making juniors take the MEAP test, which the state uses for NCLB accountability. Currently, it is optional, and only half the juniors bother. One problem, though. This is a zero stakes test as far as the kids are concerned. My prediction- if the schools force the issue, they’re going to get a lot of kids who either fill out answers at random or turn in a blank test in protest. Guaranteed “failing school” status for sure.
