Students vs. The Tests
Sylvie Baldwin has chosen to skip the SAT and the ACT because she feels those numbers can’t represent who she is. Instead, she’s choosing to use the time she’d spend preparing for and taking those exams to lobby legislators to include environmental education in driver’s ed programs. Go Sylvie!
The Bartleby Project is also encouraging students to peacefully opt out of the tests required under NCLB. (Note: The audio in this video is done by robot voices. They’re not super harsh, but it’s noticeable.)
