testsThe Obama administration believes the nation’s schoolchildren are taking too many tests, and the president says he’s going to fix it. Monday, the president met with teachers and educators in the Oval Office, including outgoing Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and the nominee to replace him, John King. Over the weekend, President Barack Obama released a Facebook video, in which he said he hears from parents “who, rightly, worry about too much testing, and from teachers who feel so much pressure to teach to a test that it takes the joy out of teaching and learning, both for them and for the students. I want to fix that.”
