Check out this fascinating article from Education Week about how and why school districts are hanging on to school district tests that are not mandated under No Child Left Behind, even as their budgets are squeezed.

This ties directly into the article I wrote last month about the costs of district testing in San Diego Unified. Though testing costs have risen here, the school district actually has pared back its local testing budget from what was originally planned, based on feedback from educators.
