Duncan Tells Education Researchers Testing Criticism Is Valid.

The Huffington Post (5/2, Klein) reports that Duncan, speaking Tuesday before a meeting of the American Educational Research Association, said that "there are serious flaws in standardized testing" and "that much criticism about testing 'is merited.'" The Post notes that Duncan's comments came the same day that National Education Association President Dennis Van Roekel and American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten "proposed a moratorium for negative consequences on teacher evaluations tied to the first few years of implementing Common Core State Standards."
