    is this sentence correct


    I read this sentence in an article

    Dr. John's report to his family doctor in August of last year recommends that he attend educational testing.

    I think this sentence is incorrect - it should be "recommended". Am I right?

    thank you

    Re: is this sentence correct

    If the recommendation is still current or valid even though it was prepared last year, the present tense is appropriate.

    not a teacher
