Is the use of standardized testing improving education?
2012 Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney
With school choice, testing our kids, giving our best teachers opportunities for advancement, these kinds of principles drove our schools to be pretty successful. As a matter of fact, there are four measures on which the federal government looks at schools state by state, and my state's number one of all 50 stays in all four of those measures, fourth-and-eighth-graders in English and math. Those principles, testing our kids, excellent curriculum, superb teachers, and school choice, those are the answers to help our schools.
Allow individuals the right to choose.
Fair Testing Standards
Having a standard test in all subjects help evaluate true levels.
