Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Standardized Testing (HBO)

This is not a form of humor that I enjoy, and the content rating here is sadly and unnecessarily PG-13, but this is one of the most cogent criticisms of our standardized testing system, its absurd limitations, and its associated for-profit drivers, that the general public will get.

That we have difficulty discussing issues of this complexity outside of our humorists--and in civil, thoughtful dialog--might tell us something about our education system itself.
