    Good piece. Problem is one of the fallacy of scale and the comfort of convenience. The politicians have been sold on standardized testing because other methods are deemed too inefficient and expensive to implement (despite what the current testing regime costs today). The public buys into testing as they want results to what they rightly perceive as lackluster schools and shoddy teaching. This testing gives easy answers, but does not necessarily provide the right answers.
