#MoCo super calls for a moratorium on #HST

This has been making the rounds. Montgomery County, MD Superintendent Josh Starr said this:

Montgomery County Superintendent Joshua Starr said Monday that the country needs a three-year moratorium on standardized testing and needs to “stop the insanity” of  evaluating teachers according to student test scores because it is based on “bad science.” He also said that the best education reform the country has had is actually health-care reform.

I taught for a spell in Montgomery County, just over the DC border. It should also be noted that MoCo did not take Race to the Top funding.  Frederick County refused as well.
