Is Education getting better?

The way to convince people 
that education is getting better 
is to restrict education to what can be tested, 
train teachers (or force them) to teach to the test, and hey presto the results go up! 
But if all that's being taught 
is that which can be tested, 
is it getting better?
If education is leaving out more and more stuff that teachers, students and society thinks 
is valuable, 
then no matter how good the results, 
education isn't getting better is it?
