As WNY parents learn of their children’s state standardized test scores from April, and
as school districts finalize teacher evaluations, New York State Sens. Kennedy and Maziarz,
along with Assemblyman Ryan, are hosting a Summit for Smarter Schools that will take aim
at “Getting Testing Right!”
It is important to know: These test scores serve only as a benchmark and are not to be
used this year to determine student or teacher performance. In fact, all that these test scores
show is that the state still has not found a fair and effective way to accurately measure performance.
We share in the belief with parents that neither students nor their schools should suffer
the consequences of an obsession with high-stakes testing. After all, our students and teachers
are more than a test score!
