Dear President Obama,

Please listen to yourself.

You say that our country has focused too much on standardized testing (well-documented to be worthless in terms of telling us anything except SES of families). Yet your DOE and its "leader" have rampantly pushed more testing down the throats of our schools, teachers, and children. PLEASE...just listen to yourself. And act upon your own words.
