EBR v. state testing
This year was anything but normal. Kidś had a very hard time learning and retaining information with this whole virtual school setup. 3rd graders will take this test for the first time this year and feel like a failure if they don't pass. High and Middle scholars are at risk of losing scholarships if they make basic or below basic. Not only that but kids who are hard of understanding or need ESL assistants who are mostly virtual because their families feel for their safety at schools. Most virtual kids are distracted during school hours from being at home. In let's face it teachers are underpaid for all the hard stressful work they had to put in running two different types of classes for just one class. Do the right thing and sign our petition to not make state testing based on passing and failing but on statistics for teachers to better work with students next year choose to support growth.
