Reps. Chris Gibson (R-N.Y.) and Krysten Sinema (D-Ariz.) have introduced the Student Testing Improvement and Accountability Act, H.R. 4172. It reduces federally mandated tests and gives states the freedom to focus on learning and high-level thinking skills instead of test preparation.
Urge Congress to pass H.R. 4172 and reduce the testing fixation that has diminished the joys of teaching and learning. This bill is a good start toward improving the way we educate our students today and preparing them for a better future tomorrow.
