Time Out From Testing and other organizations and individuals from across the country are launching a May 29th postcard campaign asking First Lady Michelle Obama to encourage the President to put an end to the use of High Stakes Testing. On the campaign trail, Michelle Obama stated:
No Child Left Behind is strangling the life out of most schools…. If my future were determined by my performance on a standardized test I wouldn’t be here. I guarantee that.
Time Out From Testing is asking that everyone send a postcard on May 29th. You can write something like this:
Dear Michelle Obama:
We want the same education for our public school children that you provide for Malia and Sasha. Our child is not a test score.
Encourage the President to end the use of high stakes standardized tests!
Mail to: First Lady Michelle Obama
Finally, let Time Out From Testing know that you sent a postcard so that it can have an accurate count of the postcards sent.
