Urge the U.S. Senate to Reduce Testing

Act now! The U.S. Senate is voting this week on a new federal education law to replace No Child Left Behind. The bill before the Senate would end federally mandated high stakes for schools and teachers. That's progress, but the proposal maintains annual testing in grades three through eight. The MTA supports Montana Senator Jon Tester's amendment, which would require testing in just one grade each in elementary, middle and high school. Click here to send a letter to Massachusetts Senators Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey urging them to support the Tester amendment and other provisions that would reduce testing in our public schools.
