#LessTesting #Yes2TesterAmend - National Twitter Storm


 
Take ActionàKill the Federal Annual Testing Mandate. You can help roll back testing overkill by acting today! Tell your two U.S. Senators to vote for Sen. Jon Tester’s amendment to reduce federally mandated standardized testing from every-kid-every-year to once each in elementary, middle and high schools. The Senate will vote the week of July 7 on a new federal education law to replace “No Child Left Behind.” The bill ends federally mandated high stakes for schools and teachers. That’s big progress for assessment reformers! But the proposal maintains annual testing in grades 3-8. Sen. Tester’s amendment will end that damaging policy. We can win if you act now! Every Senator matters. Send this letter http://www.fairtest.org/roll-back-standardized-testing-send-letter-congres or call your Senators today. (For phone numbers, see http://www/senate.gov; Tester introduced his amendment as bill number S.1025.)

Thank you.
