Cool. When we are done, let's delete WhatsApp, Tinder, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat. Let's stop them from reprogramming our childrens brains and destroying their ability to concentrate on anything for more than 5 minutes.

Nice try but that won't work. Chances are that your state or municipality's educational "leaders" have ignored the teachers and purchased some form of electronic testing for reading and math.

These tests are administered online and the data goes directly back to the corporation (with some ancillaries for the teachers.) Some of the questions can contain corporate logos/ names. Some of the questions can be used for marketing purposes.

Case in point: On the Star Reading Test, students are asked a question (with no other context):

Which word shows the most power? A) Strength B) Might C) Electricity.

Clearly, and it is my expertise, this is not a reading question. Marketing is not my expertise, but I am pretty sure this is a marketing question. It most definitely is not assessing a student's ability to read.
