Poll: Was Christie Right to Ease Back on Testing and Teacher Evaluation?
How do you feel about the governor's compromise solution reducing the impact of national tests on teachers and students?
Gov. Chris Christie this week struck a deal with the Legislature’s Democratic leadership and the state’s largest teachers union to slow down the impact of the new Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) tests tied to the Common Core State Standards.
The agreement calls for lessening the weight that state test scores will have on certain teachers evaluations for two years, and also creates a task force to examine the implications of all state testing.
