Mercer County School Officials Ask State Legislators to Reduce Testing Requirements

September 9, 2016

Mercer County School officials published a release outlining that they have joined the Northwest/West Central School Advocacy Network, asking “Ohio to follow the recommendations of ESSA.” The group cites the need for more local control, stating that “our reality is a continued reduction in classroom instruction time due to additional testing the state is mandating – beyond the federal minimum requirements. Our request is that state legislators reduce testing requirements.”
