John Nichols: Standardized Testing Is 'a Mess'

Teachers, parents and students rallied earlier this week in Albany, New York, calling for a moratorium on standardized testing—one of the lasting legacies of George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind Act. According to The Nation’s John Nichols, the situation is "a mess across the country," and the struggle is now to find a balance between not testing and over-testing.
