Madison, Wis., teacher David Wasserman, right, continued to protest NCLB’s testing policies yesterday. Instead of proctoring a state test, he sat at his desk while colleagues handed out exams, read directions, and made sure students didn’t cheat.

“I was able to stick to my morals. I did not have to touch a single test booklet. I didn’t have to read a single direction,” he told the Associated Press. “I sat there quietly while the students were working really hard on this really unnatural assessment that they are not used to.”

He said he expects to receive a letter of reprimand for leaving his class in protest Tuesday instead of giving the state tests.
