Jere Hochman runs an exemplary school district in Bedford, New York.

Before the election, he wrote an eloquent letter (which I posted though I may not have used his name) on why everyone should support President Obama.

He convinced me.

He also promised me that after the election, he would speak out about the need to change the punitive testing and accountability policies of this administration.

He is speaking out. 

The biggest problem in education today is the politicians, who are interfering in matters they do not understand, he says.

He offers excellent advice to the President, and this is only part 1.

Thank you, Jere.
