Efforts to reduce standardized testing succeeded in many school districts in 2017. Here's why and how.
from The Washington Post
Assessment reform campaigns rolled back the amount of testing and reduced high-stakes exams in many states and districts across the United States this year. A new FairTest report, "Test Reform Victories Surge in 2017: What's Behind the Winning Strategies?" explains how and why local activists were successful. It is based on interviews with groups around the nation. Widespread public awareness of the damage caused by the overuse and misuse of standardized testing, coupled with effective grass-roots organizing by parents, teachers, students and their allies, is increasingly producing positive changes in state and district testing practices.
