Texas Republicans are hearing from their constituents–in the grocery store, at the barber, wherever they go.

People think that testing in Texas is out of control.

The last state commissioner Robert Scott said so. He called the testing obsession a “vampire,” sucking the life out of education.

More than 80% of local school boards agree.

Elected officials have to listen.

They cut $5.4 billion from the school budget but managed to find $500 million to pay Pearson.

Superintendents are sick of it. School boards are sick of it. Parents are fed up. Students hate it.

Put a stake through the heart of the vampire.
