President Obama met with a group of teachers and educators Monday, including outgoing Education Secretary Arne Duncan, at the Oval Office to address the issue of over-testing in schools.
The meeting came a day after President Obama released a Facebook video, calling for the Department of Education to drastically reduced the number of standardized tests students must take to 2 percent of classroom time.
