Lawmakers Propose End to Annual Testing

21 Jan

Support The Student Testing Improvement and Accountability Act and banish federally mandated annual testing in the public schools. Let’s return out schools to the states and elected school boards that run almost 15,000 individual public school districts—that are not a monopoly as the true monopolist corporate reformers claim with their lies and propaganda.

Congressman Chris Gibson (R-NY) and Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) are sponsoring legislation to banish federally mandated annual testing. Everyone who is opposed to the overuse and misuse of standardized testing should support this bill. It is called The Student Testing Improvement and Accountability Act.
