From Dexter Tang, President of the Seattle Schools Student Senate from their meeting at Ingraham High School:
The Seattle Student Senate, the main student advocacy organization of Seattle Public Schools, supports the opposition to the MAP test.
The MAP test inefficiently uses district resources and consumes valuable instruction time. We support alternative methods of student evaluation. We encourage the district o explore alternative methods of assessing student academic achievement that are efficient and align with the classroom curriculum.
Furthermore, representatives of the Seattle Student Senate would like to participate in the selection process of a new alternative assessment.
