The petition has already been submitted to the office of Mayor Bill de Blasio

Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio has spoken out in support of so many fantastic education policies. We’re hopeful that as he starts to put his policies in place, he can work to lower the high stakes of the New York State tests for New York City students and teachers.

We put together a petition urging him to do just that.  You may read it in full HERE.

The changes we are asking for won’t fix everything. But they’re a great start – and they represent changes Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio would be able to make himself. So join us in reaching out to him and urging him to help us lower the stakes surrounding testing in NYC… and lowering the weight they are currently placing on our teachers and our students by signing this petition.
