Should California delay implementation of statewide testing?

If you read my story about K-12 testing now underway at California schools, you probably remember expert Doug McRae saying the system will not likely be ready until September 2015. If you missed that fabulous piece of journalism, you can read it here.

McRae is now going a step further, saying the testing should be delayed until the spring of 2017, or even 2018.

His reasons? Common Core is not yet implemented at most districts, and it will probably won't happen in 2014-15 either, he writes in this op-ed piece he wrote for EdSource. He explains it more eloquently than I ever could, so check it out. And let me know what you think.
