National Tests: Interesting Theory, Bad Practice.
Sizer, Theodore
Our Children, v23 n2 p7,9 Oct 1997

The paper notes that most standardized tests have serious limitations and recommends compromising by balancing parental rights, state control, and independent authority of teachers to create schools that meet community needs.
