A PETITION TO TEXAS POLICYMAKERS FROM SCHOOL BOARDS TO THE STATE CAPITOL
Texas teachers, parents and students agree: It’s time to reduce the number of standardized tests and give teachers the freedom to teach and students the freedom to learn.
Over-testing is forcing too many teachers to teach to the test at the expense of a well-rounded education that engages students in the material.
Texans believe it’s past time for the legislature to restore the rest of the cuts from 2011 and invest in our public schools so we can retain and recruit quality teachers, keep class sizes small, and prepare our children to meet the real challenges they will face in their future.
Our message to policymakers at all levels is simple: Invest not test.
Add your voice and send a message to policy makers from school boards to the State Capitol to Invest Not Test.
