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.
