This year, when I found out that we are going to have to do MCAS, I decided I had to take action. Many people feel that standardized testing is unnecessary (like myself), but this year it is just cruel. You might do well on tests, but imagine if you had lost a family member. Or you had to work to get food on the kitchen table. That is why you need to sign my petition. If we get at least 100 signatures, I will send it to the governor. Please send this to people you know, and sign below if you agree with me. 

Zoom learning is heard enough without having the stress of standardized tests, and test prep. Even without covid, standardized testing is very unnecessary. It causes unnecessary stress, and it overly used. It also does not help anyone learn the material. This petition is just trying to stop standardized testing this year, but keep in mind how it may be unnecessary all year round.

Now, I apologize if you just read through this and are wondering "What is standardized testing anyway?" Well, each state has its own form of standardized testing. In Massachusetts, it is called MCAS. MCAS gets implemented in third grade. In third grade you take it in paper, and above that you use a computer. MCAS usually takes at least four hours to complete. I hope you understand what MCAS is now.
