United States Secretary of Education Arne Duncan...

...listen to teachers:

Somebody out there in the press corps needs to fill in the blank with "high-stakes standardized testing" and pose the question:

"Since the vast majority of teachers don't want high-stakes standardized testing in the schools, should we listen to them and end the Obama administration's fixation on such tests as the silver bullet to reforming education?"

I can see the deer-in-the-headlights look on Duncan's face now!

The only question would be if Arne would have the nerve to open his mouth and cause his nose to lengthen with some political spin, i.e. BS...
