It’s time to take action on student assessment and move away from the obsession with standardized, high stakes testing. The testing fixation is robbing the children in our classrooms of a high-quality, rigorous and well-rounded curriculum, as teachers are forced to dedicate more time to test preparation and “teaching to the test.” We have two easy asks.
Email your legislators and tell them “Less Testing, More Learning” now! It’s easy and will only take a few minutes. Feel free to add your personal comments to the email.
Call your legislator to tell them why less testing and more learning is so important. All BTU members will be receiving a robo-call tonight,Wednesday or Thursday after 5 PM. You will be “patched through” to one of your legislators. All you have to do is follow the directions you hear on the phone. Once connected to your legislator, you’ll be able to leave a message to tell them why less testing and more learning is so important.
