Commentary

Educators and Parents Against Testing Abuse
EPATA is an organization of parents and educators who are concerned with the impact of high-stakes testing in California and the Central Valley. We recognize that high-stakes testing harms children and impoverishes education.

NCLB Stories: California<
"I teach students with severe and profound disabilities. My CAPA test would be great, if I could use it as an assessment tool; instead, it is used like a sledgehammer against my principal and my school."~"Furthermore, the school's teachers were directed by the administration not to allow students to use crayons in the classroom because it was not time spent directly engaged in print."~"I have been forced to conclude from my experience that NCLB is not about teaching science to students, it is about our school district raising test scores."
