In New York, Students Boycott the Latest Tests

In late October, a new English assessment test for teacher evaluation purposes sparked a sudden uprising at Stuyvesant High School. Students pledged to abstain from the test, which we saw as a waste of time and of no help to our teachers. The Department of Education revealed that we won’t receive our scores, and teachers suggested to us a few days beforehand that the test didn’t “really matter.” Some students wrote angry letters to the DOE instead of completing the essay assignment. Others, including myself, completely abstained.
