Alan Singer thinks that President Obama didn’t go far enough to reduce testing. He thinks the “Testing Action Plan” is empty rhetoric. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alan-singer/obama-fails-on-testing_b_8415776.html

Michael Bloomberg thinks the President was wrong to discount the importance of standardized testing, the source of data that tells leaders which teachers and principals should be fired and which schools should be closed.

What do you think?

I think that former NYC Mayor Bloomberg should relax. The “action plan” is all talk, no action.
