Award-winning Virginia teacher: ‘I can no longer cooperate’ with testing regime

• Washington Post
Ron Maggiano is a social studies teacher at West Springfield High School in Fairfax County. In 2005, he won the Disney Teacher Award for innovation and creativity, and in 2006, he won the American Historical Association’s Beveridge Family Teaching Prize for outstanding K-12 teaching. Now, after a 33-year teaching career, he is resigning, just four years away from full retirement.
 
Why? He’s had enough of the high-stakes testing obsession that he believes has undermined public education.
