The standardized-testing boycott that began with teachers in Chicago last year and reached new heights recently in Seattle may be exploding into a full-blown national movement.
As organized opposition to standardized testing grows, one of the nation's most outspoken and controversial education activists said Sunday that such assessments have a place in public schools but cautioned against an "overemphasis" on them.
By refusing to administer a district-mandated test to their students, teachers at a Seattle high school have sparked an "anti-testing movement" that is picking up steam by the day.
