Jere Hochman, superintendent of the Bedford schools, has written an eloquent plea to President Obama.

He supported President Obama.

Now, he says, its time to put the brakes on the testing frenzy that is enveloping students, teachers, and schools.

He begins:

I do not doubt that your intentions and those of Mr. Duncan and others are sincere. I do doubt the intentions of those attempting to profit from education and oppressing authentic learning of our most vulnerable children. You do not lead with “rear-view mirror thinking.” Please do not lead with “good intention blindness.” Mr. President.
