Palm Beach Increases Standardized Testing
Things are getting out of hand down in Palm Beach. Secondary principals are requiring teachers to give 30-40 diagnostic tests this year. This is a massive increase in standardized testing. The district confirmed that they are not requiring it, so is Robert Avossa even aware that he has test crazed principals who are forcing kids to spend hours testing on a weekly basis? Does this violate the 5% state rule? Is the Board asleep at the switch? How could Avossa not know? As it stands now, many students will be taking multiple diagnostic tests every week.
