Two teachers who lost their jobs because of the Educational Testing Service’s incorrect scoring of their Praxis II exams have filed suit against the test-maker, claiming it is a monopoly that is abusing its powers and charging excessive fees. Lawyer Phyllis E. Brown, who represents one teacher in Ohio and one teacher in Louisiana, said she believes it is the first lawsuit against the ets that cites federal antitrust laws. The suit was filed Aug. 2 in the U.S. District Court in Cincinnati.
