Jaime Wynn started this petition to TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY and

Texas Education Agency commissioner Mike Morath announced Tuesday plans to continue with the administration of the STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) with the 2020-21 school year amidst the continuing COVID-19 pandemic that sweeps our state.  Schools have been provided with very little guidance as to what the next school year looks like beyond waivers for attendance based funding to include virtual options. Students, teachers, and local agencies were thrown into a digital format of learning with very little guidance from our state agency in March 2020.  Luckily, Governor Abbott suspended testing to allow LEAs (local education agencies) to better handle the given situation without the pressure of standardized testing requirements.  With the announcement of the resuming of testing requirements for 2020-21 we are moving our attention away from the greatest concern which will be to safely and fully education students and attempt to supplement gaps experienced from the pandemic.  This petition serves are a voice for Texan parents, educators, and citizens that we stand with our CHILDREN and the best interest of children - SUSPEND STAAR TESTING and allow us to focus on REBUILDING!
