PARCC Spelled Backwards is CCRAP

As a teacher I have been very frustrated by the disruptions caused by the new wave of state-mandated tests.  Here is a piece I wrote for the Courier Post about my observations as a teacher and as a parent of a kid who is slated to take his first round of these tests next year.  He will be nine.

I hope you will take a moment to read what I have written.

PARCC Gives No Time to Learn


  1. Well stated, Jeremy. I completely agree with you. I feel that PARCC is useless, and the art of teaching is being stamped out. Hopefully with enough parents, teachers, and students speaking up, things will improve.
