Fixing No Child Left Behind: Oral Testimony of Martin West
1/21/15 | Education Next blog

In an interview with Time magazine, Sen. Lamar Alexander said he is still struggling to make a decision on whether a revised NCLB should include annual testing. Alexander indicated that he was strongly influenced by the recommendation made at a hearing last week by Professor Marty West of Harvard University that the federal government continue to require annual tests but that it leave the design of accountability systems up to the states.

The testimony presented by Marty West at that hearing is available on the Education Next website here.
