Florida School Boards Association poised to pass resolution objecting to “over-reliance” on standardized tests

The Florida School Boards Association (FSBA) will vote this afternoon on a resolution calling on Florida’s leaders to reduce the state’s emphasis on standardized testing.  The resolution passed the FSBA’s Board of Directors unanimously yesterday afternoon.  You can see the Orlando Sentinel’s coverage of the issue here.

The FSBA action represents the most serious pushback in the history of the FCAT, which started as an evaluation tool but was made “high-stakes” under the Bush Administration.
