As part of Weekend Edition Sunday's monthlong education series, we hear from Youth Radio's Chela Delgado. As a teacher, she once hated standardized tests and didn't want to make her students take them. Then, she started listening to some of the children's parents. She reveals how families in under-resourced schools are pursuing what they see as best for their kids.
