Politicians to LOVE; Some You Love to Hate

There are politicians in DC who are on the side of parents, teachers, students and the unions that are working to protect the integrity of the public education system. Reps Chris Gibson of NY and Kyrsten Sinema of AZ are sponsoring a bipartisan bill to cut the number of federally mandated tests (14) to less than half. The bill is the Student Testing Improvement and Accountability Act (HR 4172). Both participated in NEA's special tele-town hall on reducing the federal role in testing.
