Friday's New York Times gives FairTest the lead reaction quote in a story about how high-stakes testing pressures cause some educators to cheat on standardized tests.

The article, (also posted on the nytimes.com home page), includes a link to our website, which has already generated dozens of visitor referrals.  This is the fifth or sixth time the nation's leading newspaper has quoted FairTest this year.
