9th Grader Starts White House Petition To Reduce Standardized Testing

A 9th grader has started a petition for President Obama to reduce standardized testing.  He is sick of the endless hours of test prep and the devaluation of actual grades and achievements.  He is tired of one test score determining your retention or ability to graduate.  He is 4th in his class.  Please go to the below link and get this petition to it’s 100,000 mark!

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!
