Seattle Opt-Out of Standardized Tests Meeting

 

resist the test

The crisis in US education is not general and national. It is concentrated where there is poverty and segregation. Testing does not address either problem.

-Diane Ravitch

Would you like to learn more about what tests will be administered to your child in the Seattle Public School District, from kindergarten through 12th grade (See page 3 of this document to see how many hours of standardized testing your child will take this year.), and how to opt-out of those that are not necessary for graduation?

Do you have a testing experience with your student(s) that other caregivers and parents would benefit from hearing, or would you like to listen to the concerns and questions parents of Seattle Public School students have, to find common ground?

Join us for an informative meeting.  All are welcome!
