School superintendent rejects new testing goals
BOZEMAN — Montana Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau is rejecting the latest federal requirements for school testing.

She told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that the current federal requirements are unrealistic for schools to meet while they also wait for new education standards from the Obama administration.
