The Network for Public Educstion has called for Congressional hearings to investigate the misuse, overuse, and multiple costs of standardized testing.

A panel about accountability st Austin’s SXSW, Randi Weingarten and Duncan’s former Assistant Secretary for Communications Peter Cunningham, discussed the issue. Then NPE’s peerless leader Anthony Cody asked the first question. “Will you support our resolution for Congressional hearings?”

Randi immediately said “Yes!”

Even Cunningham said yes.

Who is the man behind the curtain who is wasting billions on testing, forcing severely ill children to take tests, making little children hate school ?

No one knows.
