The immediate response to our new Less Testing, More Learning petition has confirmed our suspicion that there is a lot of passionate interest in resisting the testing onslaught in Massachusetts. In just two days, the petition garnered almost 1,000 signers from cities and towns across the Commonwealth. Many are adding comments like this one from Joanna DelMonico in Billerica: "I teach at community college. Students constantly ask 'will this be on the test?' No love of learning!!! Stop high stakes testing." Or how about this from Deborah Milligan in Somerville: "I'm a high school public school teacher. The testing is causing anxiety among the children to such an extent that they can't learn because they are too anxious to do it. Stop this train!!!"
