NEA campaign aims to shift ESEA away from 'testing, labeling and punishing schools'

from THE Journal

A new multi-pronged campaign from the National Education Association will try to shift the focus of federal education policy away from high-stakes testing and back toward students, with a special emphasis on "children living in poverty, students with disabilities and English language learners." The campaign, called "Wave of Action," coincides with the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 by Lyndon Johnson (reauthorized under George W. Bush as No Child Left Behind, or NCLB), which is currently undergoing another reauthorization process in Congress. The campaign will include a range of activities, from a television ad to digital campaigns to teach-ins to leaflet distribution, all with the aim of pushing legislators to tone down the current law's emphasis on testing and the associated problems that come with it. more
