This is priceless.

David Wasserman, a Madison, Wisconsin middle-school teacher, recently refused to administer the state assessment to his students. It appears he was protesting No Child Left Behind’s mandatory testing requirements. As the controversial law’s first “conscientious objector” he received a fair amount of press coverage. In fact, he recently gave Newsweek Web an interview in which, when asked why he took his stand, he responded:

I feel that the tests assess academic achievement in biased ways, with a challenging and confusing format of questions and answers.

Shoot. I just hate that confusing question and answer format.
