Are you concerned about High Stakes Testing? Join us on Tuesday April 2nd

Educators, parents, and community members have joined together to build a public information campaign about the negative impacts of high-stakes testing. Race to the Top (RTTT), along with state and federal disinvestment and a tax "cap", are creating unprecedented changes in how we educate and how we fund education in our state.

Re-thinking Testing seeks to:
1. Educate parents and community members about how high-stakes testing hurts students, schools, and public education; 2. Inform community members about the fiscal impact of high-stakes testing on school budgets and on their school taxes; and 3. Examine how high-stakes testing takes away resources from other educational and after-school programs that the local community values
