Tell your legislators your story: Advocate for less testing and more learning
As part of the Week of Action on high-stakes testing, MEJA wants you to call their state representatives and senators to tell their own stories about testing and urge support for House bill 340, An Act Relative to a Moratorium on High-Stakes Testing and PARCC. You can reach out to your state senator and state representative anytime, 24 hours a day,until Thursday, June 11, when the bill will be heard before the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Education.
There is a patch-through system to make this easier. Simply call 617.299.7542 and follow the instructions. When prompted, enter your ZIP code and then the # sign. The system will connect you to a legislator’s office – either your representative or senator. You will need to call in again to speak to the second legislator, using the same system. Please do so!
