Emma Garcia started this petition to Florida Department of Education

Florida Students take EOCs and FSAs since 3rd grade which has caused a incredibly increase of rates of depression and anxiety in students, which leads to not doing their best which affects, schools and students. Last year the pandemic of COVID 19 made the FSAs to be cancelled, but in 2021 the school system wants to come back to these standard tests, but this year there is still a pandemic going on and many online and even physical students from elementary, middle and high schools don't feel ready to take a test that covers everything they had learned because learning is not the same as 1 or 2 years ago, which made students learn and understand better. Last year many students felt that they did not learn anything for the second half of their school year because of the COVID 19 lockdown, leading to not being prepared for the next school year which was 3 months after the whole country was sent for lockdown and 2 other months after summer. Many students felt lost when the 2020-2021 school year started, because of COVID-19 regulations schools can't have all of the students in physical students, many students had to stay for most of the year in My School Online, which makes learning a lot harder because there might be connection problems or students may be failing tests and not getting help or attention from educators, and now students from physical school and MSO do not feel prepared for the FSA and are currently suffering anxiety and depression because of how much these tests affect their academic scores and even chances to have a high school diploma. Many of us students, parents and teachers think that it is not fair to be suffering about a test in the middle of a pandemic without any academic and emotional support for it. We are asking to cancel these tests, at least for the 2020-2021 school year or until things come back as they used to be so there can be more happiness and success for our future generations.
