Last Week Tonight With John Oliver: Standardized Testing

With ridicule and humor, John Oliver drives home the absurdity of Common Core Standards and testing.  All 18 minutes touches on each problem.  (Some foul language has been bleeped.)  At one point, you will see a screen indicating testing companies.  A.I.R. is one of them.  That's the company that produced AZMerit.  Please send this to anyone you see as "on the fence," or who champions Common Core, without knowing the facts.
