50. I could rec this a thousand times.

"in a misguided effort to fix what is not broken"

No one is trying to fix anything. It's a right wing plan to break it. Break the education system, turn it over to the private sector (Pearson and co.) and make the best education only available to those who can afford it. The rest become servants who are too stupid to know who to vote for and that voting even matters.

The plan is working.

There is nothing on earth more stupid than privatization of education. Standardizing education is to teach the mundane and undermine the advancement of society though the segregation of human abilities.

I do weep for America on this point, and I weep for the future of humankind.
