From Education Week:

In a recent address, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan discussed the Obama administration’s education plans for the next two years. Duncan talked about budget plans and also stressed that the administration would not back away from annual testing for students and performance evaluations of teachers based in part on those test results. However, the administration will ask Congress to call on states to set limits on how much time can be spent on state and local testing.
