  •  I think, perhaps, there could be one or two (6+ / 0-)

    explanations here:

    First, the President is making a case for the proper use of a "test", and that he would like to see a policy like the one he described.  It could lead to higher performance, and subsequently higher evaluations and increased pay along the lines he describes.

    OR

    There could be a disconnect between what is perceived and what is reality.  Both in the President AND in the Department of Education.  When the people who provide the "studies" commissioned to study things are biased one way or another, the data they provide becomes so as well.

    Of course, there are also more nuances as well.

    Our job as educators and advocates should be to guide policy towards the good things said.
