NEA Delegates Expected To Focus On Standardized Testing


The Cache Valley (UT) Daily (7/1) reports that delegates at the National Education Association’s annual meeting in Denver are expected to focus on the overuse of standardized testing, according to Utah Education Association President Sharon Gallagher-Fishbaugh. Gallagher-Fishbaugh says that “standardized testing in reading and writing, math and science is so frequent that it’s stressing students out” and that “there seems to be frustration from educators around the nation over the increased standardized testing which has cut way down on instructional time.”
