To the editor
Bravo to The Chronicle for truly listening to teachers. Your editorial points out that "teachers spend less time on social studies and art, less time on field trips, less time on 'project-based' curriculum." But you fail to connect this to the devastating harm that state and federally mandated high-stakes testing is wreaking on our schools.
