The Power of Testing and Accountability Pressures At East River, the largest force of state and district pressure is directed at raising scores on annual standardized tests. The pressure is immense; if test scores do not improve, the school administrators risk losing their jobs, and the school could face a state takeover. ” “Extras”—subjects that do not help to improve standardized test scores, like art, music, and computer science—do not receive attention or resources, and are therefore subject to cuts and cancellation.
In spite of the potential that counselors have to be important gatekeepers and play critical roles in determining which courses students take, it is difficult to be surprised by the seeming indifference that Suzanna describes. East River has a 545:1 student-to-counselor ratio (California Department of Education 2004).

This happens often at East River because students might need the credits and a particular class is open, or because a class needs more students and the students have a free period.
