Teaching to the Test is a Civil Rights Issue

President Obama and Secretary Duncan have given lip service to the dangers of “teaching to the test,” but the Administration has taken no specific steps to stop the testing mania..


 

Support the "Teaching to the Test" White House Petition. Find it here http://wh.gov/EKn2.

It was created by a Florida parent and educator who is disappointed in the Obama administration's stating its opposition to "teaching to the test" and then ignoring the issue. The creator of this petition wants people to recognize the subliminal impacts of the over emphasis on test preparation and consider how teaching to the test actually violates the civil rights of all students. The "standardized tests" are forced on schools by their districts and state governments, as a means "to evaluate student progress and teacher effectiveness". The tests have nothing to do with college. Read More.

If this petition receives 25,000 signatures within 30 days will receive an official response. Time is running out!

Sign the petition at http://wh.gov/EKn2.
