"Almost thirty years before I started writing this book, I predicted that test-based accountability — then in its early stages, and still far milder than the system burdening schools today — wouldn’t succeed. I said that many educators would face only three options: cheat, find other ways to cut corners, or fail. As successive waves of “reform” ratcheted up the pressure to raise scores, the risks only became worse, and others and I repeated the warning.
Educators have done all three. I take no comfort in having been right."
