Statewide testing ensures accountability, transparency for parents
We can't help our children, especially Black children from low-income and working-class families, if we don't know how well schools are serving them. This is especially true when it comes to expanding the high-quality options our children need to gain equity and access to great teaching and learning. This is why the Black Alliance for Educational Options and others in the education reform movement are so committed to ensuring all schools are held accountable through annual statewide tests and other measures.
