Deborah Meier, Libertarian?

Pondiscio: Having standards to which all publicly funded schools are held accountable doesn't strike me as an undue burden.

Testing, Truth, and Consequences

Pondiscio: Fair-minded readers might applaud the mindset that asks not simply, "What does this test measure?" but also, "What kind of classroom practice does this test encourage?"
