Learning is more than a test score - Tell ISBE to reject rule changes today!

by Beth Camplain | Nov 15, 2018
Email ISBE today and explain how this change would hurt your students and school!
In his final days as governor, Bruce Rauner’s Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) is trying to rush through a rule change that would increase unfair testing burdens on schools and target high school students who exercise their right to opt out of state standardized tests.
 

ISBE’s continuing focus on standardized testing has exacerbated the inequities in Illinois’ public schools, particularly for communities of color and high-poverty schools. The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which replaced the failed No Child Left Behind (NCLB), was designed to address those inequities. It also gave students the right to opt out of unnecessary, wasteful standardized tests.
 
The proposed changes to Part 1.30 rules would deny them that right by forcing high school students to take a final standardized test to graduate. The changes would also make testing and the associated paperwork even more burdensome for schools.
 
The public comment period on the proposed changes is open through December 3. Act now to tell ISBE why they’re a bad idea.

The IFT strongly believes the proposed rule change would increase the importance of flawed standardized testing and amplify NCLB’s harmful approach to public school accountability based on high-stakes assessments, sorting, ranking, and sanctioning of schools.
