I just read this great blog about how parents courageously chose to stop standardized testing in their school.
The article points out that schools always cry about limited budgets, but that “our state spends nearly $50 million a year on standardized testing, yet parents hear their schools pleading poverty.”
Along with other schools and districts in the nation, these parents “just say no” to standardized tests. This creates a much more humane school experience for their children, saves money, and makes a statement to parents everywhere:
YOU can do this. You do have the power to make a change in the schools.
