Saturday, Newsday published this article about NY State testing chief, David Abrams resigning amid disapproval of his latest testing plan.  The plan would have called for a four hour and 15 minute ELA testing block for third and fourth graders!  Apparently, the state quickly back pedaled, issuing a statement that the plan, although released, is still under review. 

Happy reading,
