More than 60 teachers at Spencerport’s Cosgrove Middle School have signed a petition calling for action by the NYS Commissioner of Education John King, Chancellor Meryl Tisch, and Governor Andrew Cuomo. The petition takes issue specifically with this year’s ELA and Math tests for grades 3-8 characterizing the tests as “poorly written, developmentally inappropriate, deliberately confusing, and ambiguous.” Additionally, the tests require students to complete tasks with insufficient time.
Please sign the petition below to support the Spencerport teachers’ letter to NYSED, Commissioner King, Chancellor Tisch, and Governor Cuomo. Signatories will have their name, school, and county published in future postings on this site. Emails will be kept confidential and are collected for verification purposes only.
