Network for Public Education Calls For National Opt Out!

03 Apr

Opt Out! Refuse to let our children take these flawed and often fraudulent high stakes tests that only profit a few but damage many.

Diane Ravitch's blog

The Network for Public Education, with members in every state, has issued a call for a national opt out from standardized testing.

The tests have no diagnostic value. They are used to rank and grade students, teachers, and schools, but they provide no information to help teachers or students. They are useless.

They consume an absurd amount of time. Little children spend more time to take tests than law exams.

The tests have an absurdly high passing mark, which guarantees that the majority of students will fail.

The tests do not help children. They hurt children. We don’t know how to measure what matters most.

Join us. Opt out.
