Please Ask Our NJ Senators to Reduce Standardized Testing

PARENT LETTER WRITING REQUEST :  We wanted to make you aware that the U.S. Senate is expected to vote imminently on the “Every Child Succeeds Act,” legislation that would continue the federal mandate for annual standardized testing for the next five years or longer. An amendment (S. 1025) has been introduced to reduce the testing to once in elementary, middle and high school.  Please consider asking our New Jersey Senators to support a reduction in standardized testing, by co-sponsoring S. 1025.  Please use this link for a prepared letter.  All you need to do is insert your name and address; you can add any additional text that you feel appropriate.
