Please Sign the National Resolution on High-Stakes Testing

This is one petition that everyone in the U.S.A. should sign. This would be one giant step towards fixing our broken elementary and secondary systems. I urge you to sign!

National Resolution on High Stakes Testing Gains Momentum

Earlier this Spring, “Race to Nowhere” joined several national education organizations and well-known thought leaders, including former Assistant Secretary of Education Diane Ravitch, in supporting a National Resolution on High-Stakes Testing. Please join us in supporting this powerful movement to shift educational policy away from an over-reliance on standardized testing by endorsing the resolution.

As always, we look forward to supporting you and your community as you work to revolutionize your local school culture.

Sincerely,

Vicki Abeles and the Team at “Race to Nowhere”

  7. Ask questions.
