Students Protesting PARRC Test in NM

Submitted On: Monday, March 2, 2015

Analyst: O'Neill, Erin

All,

 Since I had posted on PARRC in New Mexico last fall, I thought I'd provide a quick update--the following link is to an article in the Albuquerque Journal on students around the state protesting the exam.

 I don't know if this has happened anywhere else or whether or not this will have an impact on PARRC testing in the state moving forward.  According to local news, students who refuse to take the test will not receive their high school diplomas.

Anyhow, here it is the article, if you have an interest:
