What if the students got frustrated with the amount of standardized tests?
What would happen if all the students protested?
What if they didn’t show up?
Well, some Colorado students did just that.
PS- I thought these were the interesting statements from the article:
Critics say the tests do not represent what is taught in state high schools, and that preparing for them wastes valuable classroom time and stretched resources.
“Practically no teachers or students were involved in the passing of this legislation,” Chaya Wurman, one of the organizers and a senior at Boulder’s Fairview High School, said in a video statement.
“We’re being tested on things that we have never learned before, or haven’t learned in years,” she said, adding that many students believe they would not do well on the tests.
