No More High-Stakes Standardized Tests in SC

To be delivered to Mick Zais, SC State Superintendent of Education, The South Carolina State House, The South Carolina State Senate, and Governor Nikki Haley

Petition Statement

South Carolina public schools spend too much time and money preparing for and administering high-stakes standardized tests. We do not believe that high-stakes testing is a fair or appropriate way to assess students or rate schools and teachers. We do not believe that a student's test score should be used in a pay-for-performance plan for teachers. We want to see an end to high-stakes testing, and a return to meaningful learning in the classroom.
There are currently 224 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

High-stakes standardized testing has a negative impact on schools, teachers, and students. Our state has plans to adopt a pay-for-performance model to grade and punish our hard-working teachers. Accountabilty and control of public schools needs to return to local communities. Help save our schools!
