In recent years, New York State has expanded the use of high stakes standardized testing. We are concerned about the ever-increasing over-reliance on results from standardized tests to measure student learning. We are calling on Governor Cuomo, the State Education Department, the New York State Board of Regents, and New York’s legislative leaders to develop and implement a process by which parents/guardians concerned about the impacts of testing on student learning can voluntarily opt their children out of standardized testing.
That’s why we created a petition to The New York State House, The New York State Senate, and Governor Andrew Cuomo.
