It has nothing to do with learning.

I thought the results of those tests had relatively little effect on the students. I thought the purpose of the test was to justify funding and stuff like that... Like, "This school did well, let's give them 500 air conditioners instead of the 12 that they need," and, "This school did poorly, let's increase their class size to 60 per trailer, and replace the already functioning air conditioners with blow torches."

Yes. But the students who like their school want to do well on their school's behalf. Also, it's the students who are doing the work, such as it is.

I would like to come by some time, BTW.

Yes. It took me a while to see it, because it came in the middle of many, many Google alerts.
