Is the use of standarized testing improving education???

A standardized test is a test that is administered and scored in a consistent, or "standard", manner. Standardized tests are designed in such a way that the questions, conditions for administering, scoring procedures, and interpretations are consistent[1] and are administered and scored in a predetermined, standard manner

Mitt Romney(pro)

Mitt Romney thinks if schools hire the best teachers education will be great. The teachers should be paid properly though. Also make sure that you have school choice and to test kids to make sure they meet their standards.

Ron Paul (con)

Ron Paul thinks the "government should not be getting involed in education". the parents should be responsible for the kids education, not the government. the government has gotten very involved with the shcool things.
