It's a sensible-sounding move that drives yet another nail in the
coffin of Congressionally-created national tests -- for now at least:
"Nine states have come together for the first time to develop a common
high school math test, a move described by some as a step toward
national educational standards," according to this AP story (here). "The states are Arkansas, Kentucky, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island." Nope. Not IL. We do Algebra 2 our own special, Land Of Lincoln way.
