Stop Wasting education funds on EQAO standardized testing.

This petition had 456 supporters

Today I administered EQAO (grade 3 standardized testing) to my wonderful grade 3 class. We have worked so hard and learned so much this year in all areas of the curriculum including how to be a caring community, how to stand up for what we believe in, and how to learn together in an inclusive environment.  I cannot stand by and  participate in a practice that is a waste of time, money and emotions anymore without speaking up. I have to be a role model to my students and stand up for what I believe in.  EQAO testing does not assess what my wonderful, intelligent, hungry, challenged, special needs, gifted, anxious, creative, funny, athletic, diverse and fabulous group of students has learned in Reading, Writing and Math since Kindergarten.  I do know how to assess my students' learning! We need the Ontario Government to stop wasting money on EQAO testing and put it where we need it most....into supporting every one of our students to be the best that they can be!
