School Board Member Testing Resolution Proposal

The Tampa Bay Times is reporting that Hillsborough School Board Member Candy Olson offered up a version of an anti-testing resolution for consideration by the board. I believe that it is a very acceptable resolution and strikes a balance between the need for testing and assessment and the desire not to overdo it. Here is my favorite part of it:

1. Stop making any changes to tests, requirements or scores, cut scores, and add no new high stakes tests for at least three years. We ask for recognition that reduced financial resources have reduced staff, that it takes time to "get it right," and that new standards, with new tests, will be in place in ___ (year).
