Ask Mrs. Obama to Support an End to High-Stakes Testing!

When Mrs. Obama was on the campaign trail with her husband she said the following about the Bush Administration’s No Child Left Behind Program:

No Child Left Behind  is strangling the life out of most schools.  If my future were determined by my performance on a standardized test I wouldn’t be here. I guarantee that.

Many agree with her criticism. If you do, ask her to help end the reliance on high-stakes standardized tests.

Our friends at Time out From Testing, FairTest, Rethink Learning Now,  and other groups are urging parents, teachers, students, and anyone else interested to send a postcard to Michelle Obama with this simple, clear message:

Dear Mrs. Obama:

We want to provide the best high-quality education for our public school children, just as you want to provide the best for Malia and Sasha.

Children are not test scores.

Encourage the President to end the use of high-stakes standardized tests!
