We must end the massive assessment schedule we currently place on students. The STAAR is a test of minimum knowledge. Passing the STAAR doesn’t prepare students for success in upper levels or post secondary education. We need for the Legislature to pass legislation eliminating the STAAR and empowering districts to choose what assessments, if any, to replace it with. If you agree that this petition item needs to be addressed by the 86th Legislators please sign the petition.
