To the editor
Your Sept. 25 editorial suggested that elementary schools have been more successful in meeting testing goals than high schools because it is easier to "get all teachers on the same page" in elementary schools. This reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of the No Child Left Behind law, which mandates the testing process.
