Yet here in Washington, we still require students to pass the same standardized tests to graduate – in other words, we’re still using tests to make high-stakes decisions about our students’ futures. That’s inappropriate, and WEA has fought against this policy for more than 15 years.
Headed into the 2016 legislative session in January, we have momentum on the testing issue. This might be our best chance to eliminate testing as a barrier to graduation.
You can help by signing WEA’s Student Testing Bill of Rights online petition.
We’ll be delivering the petition to the State Board of Education and key legislators. So please, take the time to add your name, and together, we can score another victory against harmful student testing.
