Write Congress, demand less testing, an end to high stakes.

Dear Angela,
Your voice can help make a difference! Send a letter to urge your Senators and Representative in the U.S. Congress to support a reduction in standardized testing to once each in elementary, middle and high schools, while ending punitive sanctions.

The House and Senate education committees plan to re-write the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (also known as NCLB) in February. So, write now!

You can strengthen your message by adding your own comments, such as your and your children's personal experiences with overtesting.

Thank you,

The FairTest Staff
