TAKE ACTION: Next Steps for Assessments!

Leg/Ed LogoPlease share this message with your legislators, TODAY! Next Steps for Assessments! Student testing deemed questionable by parents and educators combined with a state budget that links aid increases to even greater use of test scores has resulted in a storm of protest.

An effective response will require both time and collaboration with state policy makers to craft solutions that will calm the rhetoric and improve student and teacher assessment to move education forward. To those ends we request immediate legislation so please click here to send this message to your legislators TODAY!
