Fred Klonsky has this up on Barbara Byrd-Bennett’s threatening letter to parents who wish to opt-out of the testing, testing, testing of their children.

I would put it back in her lap– show us that these tests are provable measures of one’s intelligence. They can’t. Because they’re not. There is no test that can measure potential. And the kinds of questions being asked–whether a first grader knows the Code of Hammurabi shows a complete lack of understanding of child development.
