  1. On a dreary overcast day like today, this is worth watching. All the hype about the United States lagging behind other countries is a myth perpetuated by “deformers” and “profiteers.” The standardized testing industry is raking in billions due to Common Core and the Wall Street executives, millionaires and billionaires who perpetuate the lies that drive standardized testing. It is a moneymaking scheme, nothing else. This video provided wonderful evidence to support the emphasis on standardized testing is a farce.
