The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers or PARCC exam is a new standardized test that is more rigorous than other standardized tests and is supposed to create better students. However, this is an unfunded exam that is to be taken by students multiple times a year. Students lose valuable time in the classroom to prepare for this exam on top of having to take all of their other exams, finals and preparing for college. Time in the classroom needs to be spent on learning, not just preparing for an exam that doesn't even help them get into college. One test determines if a student gets a high school diploma or not. School is about education, not test scores.
