I think a lot of us privileged folk shudder at the idea of "teaching to the test," because we went to schools were everyone was so far above the standard that this would have been dull and stunting.

Um... that seems rather implausible. I went to perfectly normal and average schools, and they were already dull and stunting without "teaching to the test".
