As sighted in the article on the CA PTA website: "California State PTA President Colleen A.R. You issued the following statement in response:
AB 484 helps California take a sensible step in the transition to a new assessment system that will align future testing with the Common Core State Standards and foster high-quality teaching and learning in California’s classrooms.
This bill helps serve the needs of all students. It clearly signals the state’s commitment to implementation of the deeper learning and critical thinking skills embedded in the Common Core State Standards, while also ensuring we do not over-test our children.
Ensuring all children have the opportunity to acquire critical 21st century skills has been a top legislative priority for the California State PTA and we commend the Governor for signing this legislation.
