The debate over annual testing has taken center stage as Congress considers reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Assessments provide critical information for parents and legislators on student progress, but when does annual testing become overtesting? And will it survive reauthorization? Join Fordham's Mike Petrilli and AEI's Mike McShane for a livestreamed event on testing and accountability in the wake of the Senate hearing on the new ESEA.

Watch the livestreamed event here on Wednesday, January 21 at 3:00 p.m. ET and follow the conversation with @educationgadfly at #FernTwoMikes.
