  1. Lots about “so much testing.” I don’t get it. Maybe Massachusetts is an outlier. Our 10th graders have less than 10 hours per year of MCAS, out of 1,000+ hours of school. Less than 1%.

    Half the grades (K, 1, 2, 9, 11, 12) in MA don’t even take MCAS.

    Ravitch and Finn seem to agree that national standards and assessments (Ravitch=feds; Finn=opt-in created by Achieve et al) are the way to go.
