IL lawmakers join education stakeholders in opposition to ISBE’s proposal to increase testing

In a letter released Dec. 14, thirty-seven Illinois legislators join education stakeholders in urging the Illinois State Board of Education to hold off on an overhaul of the state’s current assessment system.

In addition to lack of stakeholder input on the $228 million proposal, lawmakers have raised concerns about over-testing students, particularly in low-income Black and brown communities, and expanding testing to the early grades. Their letter will be delivered to State Superintendent Carmen Ayala and the board ahead of its Wednesday meeting. Sign up to learn how to get involved and receive important Teach Not Test news.
