Way to go ASCD.
A press release this morning from ASCD:
In a statement released today, ASCD calls on policymakers to institute a two-year moratorium on using new state standardized assessments for accountability purposes.
“This does not mean we should do away with testing,” said David Griffith, ASCD director of public policy. “But we must recognize there is an imbalance. A two-year break from the high stakes attached to the tests will allow states to administer the assessments and share the results with districts, schools, and families, while providing schools with adequate time to thoughtfully consider and address student performance.”
