If you are interested in above grade level testing

Don't mean to get political, but if you are interested in signing a petition to support the TALENT act to require state assessments to be capable of measuring above grade level proficiency- please see below. You do have to create an account to sign it. I live in a testing state and to me it is worthless to have my kids take grade level tests each year. Feel free to send this on to local groups- it still needs over 20.000 signatures to get it moving.
