    Highly Recommended

    The authors have done an outstanding job of identifying the real reasons that we need to stop the standardized testing that is going on in our nations public schools. For thoses who are really concerned this book gives you all the facts and support to really get policy leaders to listen.

    If you are an educator, I strongly suggest you read this book. If you
    are an educator who teaches in a public school, I want to insist you
    read this book. In language even an English teacher can understand,
    the authors point out the many, many problems with standardized tests.
    They progress from clearly explained technical aspects of how tests are
    constructed, through issues with accountability to bigger philosophical
    questions of what a quality education should entail. This book did more
    to help me understand the problems of current education reforms than any
    other single thing I've read. Please, if you care about young people and
    their learning, read this book.
