A recent national survey done by Gallup and the respected education organization Phi Delta Kappa had some very enlightening things to say about the obsession with standardized testing that has gripped our country for the past 20-25 years. The survey strongly indicated that parents across demographic groups believe that standardized testing is both overemphasized and, further, that such testing is not an accurate indicator of educational quality. Parents and teachers in our state and across the nation have reached their saturation point with standardized testing.
