Tis the season for giving, and this year, I'm urging all of my friends and allies to give to FairTest. For the first time in many years, FairTest and the nationwide test resistance movement are making real headway.
FairTest has hung in there for nearly three decades, a nimble David to testing Goliaths. The deep-pocketed Goliaths continue to push their agenda, but now there is concrete evidence that assessment reformers are turning the tide.
Don't believe me? Just look at the frequent headlines about the successful campaigns FairTest is leading to roll back K-12 standardized exam misuse and overuse while advocating better forms of assessment, such as test-optional college admissions.
I am proud to serve on FairTest's Board of Directors and make regular financial contributions.
