Boston Globe “It is developmentally inappropriate and socially irresponsible to offer MCAS testing during the COVID-19 pandemic. I’ve been a union member of an American Federation of Teachers affiliate and a senior leader at education nonprofits that make most union leaders cringe. This is common sense. Whether you’re pro- or anti-testing, we need to think about our children. Be realistic that we may not go back to school in May, and plan for the summer and fall to ensure that gaps don’t persist for our most vulnerable student populations.” Letter: A pandemic is no time to press ahead with testing.
