After two decades, the executive director  of the State School Boards Association, Tim Kremer, has decided it’s time to retire.

He shares his insights with WXXI’s Karen DeWitt, including how he came to believe that all of the emphasis on standardized testing in recent years, may have been a mistake.

Kremer's successor is Robert Schneider, who's been chief operating officer at NYSSBA since 2014.
