Standardized tests threaten the emotional and mental wellbeing of students in many ways. The pressure that is placed on the shoulders of students to pass these exams is mentally and emotionally crippling. We, as a group of high school seniors who have had firsthand experience with these tests, propose a policy -- or rather, the nullification of a policy -- where most (if not all) standardized tests (e.g. Regents) are eliminated from New York State schools so that students may focus on learning for the sake of true comprehension, excelling in future academic endeavors, and focus on more useful life tasks.
