Stop Excessive NYS Standardized Testing & Student Data Collection

WE THE PEOPLE of the State of New York, do establish this petition calling on Commissioner King, Secretary Duncan, the NYS Board of Regents, NY State Legislators, US Congress, Governor Cuomo, and President Obama to reverse course on new mandates requiring excessive high stakes testing and excessive data profiling of our children within our public education system of free common schools. While meaningful assessment is an essential component of a world-class education, the new NYS standardized assessments are aligned with unproven reforms neither supported by rigorous research nor vetted by educators and parents.
