Oklahoma withdraws from national college readiness testing alliance


Oklahoma is dropping out of PARCC, and this story says (a) "dropping out of PARCC could save the state up to $2 million a year" and (b) "The state Education Department will take bids soon on testing options." I wish Oklahoma the best, but a little part of me thinks that in the long run Oklahoma might end up paying more for testing, not less, and the tests they get might not be as good.
