Congressman Steve Israel and Long Island Superintendents Announce Reduced Student Testing Legislation
Congressman Steve Israel was joined by a group of Nassau and Suffolk County Superintendents at South Middle School to announce the Tackling Excessive Standardized Testing (TEST) Act, which would allow states to choose an alternative testing program for students in Grades 3-8 and reduce annual testing from two to one test per year, among other recommendations. Dr. Dolan stated, "Congressman Israel has taken a stand on this issue that will address the overtesting of students across the United States. These measures, once enacted, would address this practice and serve as an incentive for schools to improve their performance." More details about the TEST Act follow courtesy of The Island Now and Verizon Fios1 News
