Tell our leaders: More teaching. Less testing!

Tell our leaders: End the obsession with testing!

Louisiana spends hundreds of millions of dollars on tests that can unfairly and inaccurately compare and label our children, our teachers and our schools.

An “apples-to-apples” comparison is impossible and it shouldn’t be the goal of education. Our focus should be on deciding what our children need to know and on instruction. The purpose of testing should be to learn if children know what they should to be successful in life.
