    Another other thing that slides under the radar of all this discussion is that these tests and the prep materials are not cheap. They have to keep writing new test so no one cheats--constant product development. And there are a lot of side materials--practice exams, worksheets, lesson plans, to help people teach to the test. I edit books for a living, and the companies that pay the BEST are the test prep people. Second are textbook publishers.

    Maybe we could get 'em on an unfunded mandate.
