#ParentsSay: Tests are Fair. Tests are Good. But There Are Too Many of Them.

Lauren Camera of US News & World Reports highlights results from our just released parent poll at Education Post about parent attitudes around testing. She includes graphics and commentary about what we learned, including that parents are divided over the amount of testing their children experience but that a plurality of them believe that the tests are fair and have a positive impact on education overall.
"We're hearing from parents that they generally see value and promise in testing, but their experiences with testing do not come close to matching what they want for their kids," Education Post Executive Director Peter Cunningham said in a statement. "Parents told us that they see standardized tests as a tool for the system. They want them to be used more as a tool to help their kids learn."
