Worcester School Committee Supports Testing Moratorium

laws1The Worcester School Committee has supported a resolution to halt high-stakes testing like MCAS and PARCC.

"While committee members acknowledged standardized tests like the MCAS and its potential replacement, the PARCC, have value, they said the over-emphasis on testing in the state has become too much of a distraction in classrooms."

Congratulations to the Worcester School Committee for supporting this moratorium. We look forward to seeing more districts follow their lead.
