Des Moines Education Association Resolution of Support

Passed on January 22, 2013:

“I move that the Des Moines Education Association Executive Board stand in support of the Seattle public school teachers who are refusing to give the MAP test for the reason that it harms student learning. Our nation’s obsession with standardized testing is creating schools where students and teachers are having their creativity and love of learning crushed under a blind rush to improve scores. Teachers must take a stand to protect their students’ right to have a learning environment that promotes the development of the all of their talents and capacities not just one that has a narrow focus on improving standardized test scores.”
