[Susan notes: Of course the Times wouldn't publish this letter. After all, it calls into question just whom they label 'education expert.' Read more of what's wrong with the article in College Board Out to Lunch. ]

To the editor

Unfortunately, in the wildly mis-titled Everything You Need to Know About the New SAT (Nov. 1), the only "testing experts" whose opinions were sought work for test prep outfits. I can assure you that longtime high school teachers bring a very different perspective to the matter at hand. Please know that a concerned public needs much better information about this new can of worms.
