I do not feel like education relies too heavily on testing. Unless someone can tell me a better way to show how a student has learned about the topic and is knowledgable on it I feel that tests are the best way. Now that does not mean that I like tests, because I do not. I am a decent test taker myself I would say. Standardized tests are the worst of them all. Taking the ACT was one of if not the worst and hardest test I have ever taken in my life. But in the world we live in today everything is competitive and colleges want to accept the brightest and most promising students. There are ways you can better yourself for taking tests, it just takes time and effort. So in conclusion, tests are the best way to measure your knowledge and ability but they aren't everyones favorite.

There are a lot of important things in my life but I will keep the list short to 4. The first most important thing to me is my family. They are always there for me and wouldn't be here without them. The second most important thing to me is my car. It is pretty nice and it gets me wherever I need to go. The third most important thing in my life is baseball. Baseball is my favorite sport and something I am pretty good at. And finally, the last thing I am thankful for is my house. It does a good job of keeping me warm and is nice and its welcoming.

The president I believe had the greatest impact is Abraham Lincoln. The reason I say this is because during his short presidency he abolished slavery and mended a nation torn by the Civil War. The hardest thing about being president is probably all of the choices you have to make and having to make yourself look perfect infront of an entire nation at all times. It would be hard being in the spotlight all the time. I would never want to be president because I am a quiet person and that is just not something that I am interested in. But I guess if I were to ever run for president my campaign pitch would be "Bringing Welfare to an End, in 4 years".
