Elkhart County educators ask the State for new testing system

NOW: Elkhart County educators ask the State for new testing system

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. – Elkhart County educators asked the State for a completely new testing system on Friday.

Educators and businesses in Elkhart County are concerned after receiving scores from the new I-Learn tests that are more difficult than other schools’ tests.

The scores were released on Wednesday and Superintendents from seven school districts voiced their concerns on Friday to State lawmakers.

“I think before anyone would transition to anything new, we would really have to evaluate and make sure it would be the right step. I think that’s the most important because we can’t just keep changing things,” said State Senator Linda Rogers.

Superintendents said that a change may make it hard for educators to teach the right things.

WoW! I STEP was too difficult. This new test shows even worse results! Could it be the quality of the instructors. Certainly not! Each teacher is 1000s of $$$ in debt. They have to work 180 days a year, for slave wages. They need to buy all there own room supplies! Even though we have packed everything from a free backpack to a RR train with free supplies. And most schools are going digital. Oh yeah! The kids get tablets free! So what is next? Dick and Jane might help!
