Letter from FairTest to all Presidential Candidates. October 2007

October 25, 2007

Dear Candidate for President:

As the only national organization with testing reform as its focus, FairTest has a more than 20-year history of working to improve assessment of America's students. We have addressed such issues as the proper role of college admissions exams in university admissions, state graduation and grade promotion tests, and the role of assessment in the No Child Left Behind law (NCLB).
