from Education World
As those in the education sphere focus on debating whether or not Trump's pick for education secretary Betsy DeVos is the right choice for the job, one Texas lawmaker is resurfacing an age-old education debate that has gotten lost in the shuffle: what is the right amount of testing for students? According to Time Warner Cable News, Republican Rep. Jason Isaac has introduced the Teaching Over Testing Act in order to reduce standardized tests in the state from 22 to 17 as well as reduce testing's influence on both teacher evaluation and school ratings.
