School Testing 2

City Transformation: School Testing

  • Pray for the K-12 teachers in our city’s schools as they communicate with school and government officials theirs and their students’ experiences with high stakes testing.  Also, pray that effective, committed teachers would be part of the decision-making process about testing and other modes of evaluation of student learning.

Currently, school administrations, teachers and families are grappling with the issues regarding high stakes testing for K-12 students.

Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding.
For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold. Proverbs 3:13-14
