By refusing to administer a district-mandated test to their students, teachers at a Seattle high school have sparked an "anti-testing movement" that is picking up steam by the day.
"I am asking as your superintendent that teachers follow our policies and procedures and administer this assessment for our students," Mr. Banda wrote in an open letter last week. "This is especially important for our students who are the most at-risk academically. I am hopeful we will continue to work together in support of our students."
Last week, he announced the formation of a task force to study the Measures of Academic Progress and similar assessments.
