Mitt Romney on NCLB: He Likes Testing


Check out this blog item at The Washington Post, which details Republican Mitt Romney's brief statement of support on Sunday for student testing as part of the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

The former Massachusetts governor may not be taking the popular stance in defending standardized testing. But, he's clearly distinguishing himself in the pack of presidential candidates in both political parties who are routinely bashing the federal school accountability law.


NCLB is a proven disaster. I t fosters the idea that you do, in fact, "fatten your calves by weighing them"! We need to be allowed to go back to actually teaching life skills that are really useable as opposed to teaching to a test for the sake of a score that may or may not be indicitive of anything.

I cannot and will not support any candidate, from any party, who supports continuation of NCLB
