The LAST thing kids who have lived through nearly a year of a global pandemic need is mandatory school testing.  Many students haven't been to school in 11 months or have only been to school part-time.  They are desperate for human interactions, not high-stakes testing.  Annual testing is always stressful, and the information is not useful for teachers or families.  Insisting these tests move forward creates enormous logistical challenges for districts and teachers already strained by the ever-changing needs precipitated by the pandemic.  Given the circumstances, testing is unlikely to yield useful data.  Perhaps most importantly, it would take up precious instructional time and would not be a good use of limited resources.  We need to support our students academically, emotionally, and socially, not stress them out further!
