Just a sample

Sent to the New York Times, Sept 20, 2010

Susan Engel ("Scientifically tested tests," September 20) is right: There is far too much testing going on in schools. There is no need to test every student to get an accurate picture of where the problems are: When you go to the doctor they don't take all your blood, just a sample.
