Pallas Letter to New York Times

Professor Pallas in NY Times on Annual Testing: Perhaps There's Another Way to Hold Schools Accountable
In a letter to the editor of The New York Times responding to an earlier article about high-stakes annual school testing, Professor Pallas writes:  “An argument in favor of annual testing of a wide swath of American schoolchildren would be more persuasive if it addressed the fact that most other countries — including those we admire for their superior student performance — do not have such a national policy. Perhaps there’s more than one way to hold the education system accountable for what students learn in school.”
