Of course others remain loyal to the MCAS, including the Pioneer Institute and former PI executive director and new Secretary of Education James Peyser. (We will be watching the PARCC v. MCAS conflict with interest.)
Meanwhile, our petition calling for a moratorium on the high-stakes use of standardized tests has surpassed 3,000 signatures.
The petition is set up to notify state legislators "automagically" about how many people have signed and how many signers are voters in their legislative district. Another good reason to reach out, again, to all of your contacts and urge them to sign on. And be sure to check out our updated fact sheet on opting out of MCAS or PARCC tests.
