National Testing

As printed in the Washington Post, September 15, 1997 The debate about voluntary national testing for fourth-grade reading and eighth-grade math has until now been dominated by two views. One view has been voiced by some conservatives and Republicans, notably Rep. Bill Goodling, chairman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. They oppose national testing under any condition. The other view is that of the Clinton administration, which has its own national testing scheme.

A TORT CLAIM FOREVER CHANGES 1 FAMILY

Reprinted with permission from The Orlando Sentinel As I sat in my car on a dark and narrow road, I watched Cheryl walk up the road until she became a speck on the edge of my headlights. She stopped when I flashed the lights. It was an odd exercise, but we were recreating an accident scene, and Cheryl represented a dead man. I was a driver who may have killed him. I had been sued by a family who was accusing me of killing their son in a motorcycle crash. We went out to that dark road hoping to revive our memory of that horrible night.

Now the EPA says implementing the standards will cost more than its original estimate of $8.5 billion annually; its final Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) for the new standards contains an annual cost estimate of $46 billion.1

Vice President Al Gore's suggestion that melting glaciers may be the result of global warming cannot be taken seriously, according to a market-oriented advocacy group. "Any grade-school science textbook will tell you the process of glaciation and deglaciation is completely natural and has occurred many times in Earth's history and will likely occur again," said Paul Beckner, president of Citizens for a Sound Economy.
