Why this petition matters

Started by Adriana Frith

TEA is mandating Staar testing to be on chromebooks starting in 3rd grade. This is causing school districts to put chromebooks into kindergarten classrooms to start preparing incoming children for this test. School districts are approving the $2 million bonds instantly. Education boards across the state are not even giving this a second thought! This is wrong!

K-3 graders do not need chromebooks. They need to learn to read and write. It is vital they learn with pencil and paper. Studies have shown the repetitive process of forming letters and interacting in real world situations is so important for growth. Pandemic children are behind in academics, social and emotional development. We need to stop this.

Our children deserve better.
