Opt Baltimore City out of the Parcc Exam

We believe that no student should be required to take the Parcc. It wasn’t made to serve us, the students, as it violates our rights to culturally relevant curriculums, and high-quality education. We commit to searching for better alternatives to the system of standardized tests.

Why is this important?

We, the students of Baltimore, are being denied access to culturally relevant education. The punitive system of standardized testing hinders our ability to learn.


Reasons for signing

  • It is ill written, poorly delivered, and not at all adaptable to our Special Needs students!
  • I hate this test.
  • Opt all states out of this test and Commom Core.
