Regarding “Testing system fails” (News, May 1): It's “outrageous” (Janet Barresi's reaction to the testing failures) that $16 million is being spent on testing. It shows there's no respect for the teacher's ability to evaluate whether the student has mastered the requirement and subject of the class and either passed or failed. If there's a poor-quality teacher, the administration should be able to easily identify him or her and take care of the problem unless the administration is poor quality. That money could be better spent for quality education.
