Should Tests Determine Our Future? started this petition to Mayor of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and

Tests should not determine a person’s future. Without testing, students can achieve many things. It will cause less stress on the students as well as more time to expand one's learning skills. Instead of testing, each student should submit a portfolio at the end of the school year.

Some tests that should be taken away are the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT), the standardized tests such as the ACT (American College Testing), SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test), regents, and state tests. 

Well, of course, there will be an option if the student wants to submit a portfolio or do the tests. However, we think tests are not allowing us to provide our full academic capability and potential, thus showing why testing should be removed.
