Subject: Love What You're Doing
"Thanks for the email about your campaign to call out the emperor on his lack of clothes when it comes to standardized testing. I assume this movement is run by Mr. Thompson of Johnny Thompson Music, which makes me especially happy to know that someone who cherishes the value of music is a leader in this fight. For six years, I was assistant director of Pasadena Community Youth Orchestra and frequently utilized the products, services, and expertise of Johnny Thompson Music. I now live in Richmond, VA, and am a middle school math teacher. I am absolutely shocked, saddened, and disgusted by the degree to which standardized tests dictate education. I have written a few articles on the subject on my website, EducationWithaPurpose.com. I fully support your mission, and would be happy to help in any way I can."
