Money and Testing in Tennessee

Last week, I wrote about one district in Tennessee where the Director of Schools was fighting the state over the annual End of Course Tests after the shift to a new testing regimen ended in a disaster.

Ultimately, the decision was made to resume the tests due to the threat of a $3 million fine from the state.

However, some question the wisdom of withholding funds from a district as a means of policy enforcement.
