S.C. mulls scale-back of science testing

Abstract:
Proponents say giving fewer tests will save money and time, and alleviate anxiety among students in grades three through eight.

“What I see is ... us spending a lot of money at the University of South Carolina on nanotechnology and biomedical research. Adding one more day (of testing) doesn’t seem like a hardship. I’m willing to trade that day to test for science than take a chance at hindering our progress in those areas.”
