Week 4-Take 5 #2

I was thinking...imagine that! Anywho, doesn't constructivist theory kind of contradict state mandates and tests? If we want kids to create their own learning, aren't we going outside (or selling them short) of what they are expected to know,even if they are the one's ultimately deciding what that is? Does that make sense? I still think you can follow curriculum, but I can see this theory as conflicting with certain entities for student performance(i.e tests) or what the state wants students to learn. Is testing just another facet that gets in the way of this kind of learning? If I confused anyone, then great!
