In an Education Week Commentary, Betty J. Sternberg, Connecticut's commissioner of education, argues that the No Child Left Behind Law precludes her state from using "formative" tests, imposing instead annual standardized testing, which she says, is much less useful to the classroom teacher.

"Do we want a national policy that causes states to lower their educational standards in homage to some false 'principle': annual, standardized testing?," Sternberg asks.

What do you think? What's your take on Sternberg's argument?
