We invite you to a meeting to discuss the current state of testing in CMS and North Carolina, as well as what can be done to decrease the amount of testing on our children. We will focus on the Read to Achieve program but also discuss other forms of high-stakes testing.


We will have several guest speakers:
Dr. Bruce Taylor, Associate Professor of Reading and Literacy at UNC Charlotte, will give a short overview of the information that standardized tests provide and how that information can be used or misused.

Rob Bryan, Tricia Cotham and Craig Horn, who represent our area in the NC House of Representatives, will provide information on what the legislature is doing related to testing.

Pamela Grundy, co-chair of MecklenburgACTS.org and founding member of Parents Across America, will describe nationwide efforts to reduce testing.


Chuck Nusinov, executive director of learning and teaching for CMS will also be on hand to answer questions.


The presentations will be short and there will be lots of time for questions and discussion. We’d love to have a representative from every CMS school.
For more information, e-mail us at info@rtanc.org.
