If a worthless program is abolished in a forest and no one cares, does it make a sound?

Oregon Education Coalition
"Helping teachers and parents take their schools back from the bureaucrats."

Rob Kremer was on the Lars Larson Show today and is asking people to sign the online petition supporting HB 3162 which would do away with CIM/CAM. Go to the website and scroll down a little.

Text of petition:

I, ______________________________,
lend my support to HB 3162, which will replace CIM, CAM, and the benchmark tests in grades 3, 5 and 8 with a system of assessments that are objectively scored, can be readily compared to results in other states, and that meet technical standards for validity and reliability as defined by the "Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing."
By signing below I allow the sponsors of HB 3162 to list my name as a supporter of the bill in communications with media, legislators and the general public.

Want to abolish "No Child Left Behind" too?

What I want is school choice. Any step in that direction is fine by me.
