Raise Your Voice to Help Roll Back Federal Testing Mandates!

You can help stop Congress from reauthorizing a No Child Left Behind law that locks in another decade of testing overkill. Email Senator Warren, Senator Markey and your U.S. Representative today. (Warren is a member of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, which is holding hearings on the reauthorization of No Child Left Behind). 

Tell them to scale back standardized testing to once each in elementary, middle and high school and end punitive sanctions. With strong grassroots pressure, we can win. So write now!

Congress' decision will shape and limit what states and districts can do for years to come. Your voice is needed to put policy makers on a better track.

Washington, D.C. is acting quickly. Bills will move in both the House and Senate in the next few weeks. 
That leaves very little time. Send your email now!
