(Nashville, TN) -- A large group of parents are questioning the use of standardized tests.

The scores result in many decisions among educators in the state. Metro Nashville School Board member Amy Frogge said testing has gotten out of hand. She said, quote, "We're testing our children to death." Several complaints led to a request for Metro staff to investigate the number of exams and time spent to prepare for them.
