School students in Colorado, US are organising a boycott of tests todayThe standardised test boycott movement which started in Seattle is growing in strength with national petitions and student boycotts. Today students in Colorado are refusing to take TCap tests, saying that they take time away from teaching and - aligned as they are with the so-called common core standards - that they are designed to create 'common core' children. They say that the children of the 1% do not have to take such tests and nor should they. Moreover the testing materials create profits for private companies. Last month, pupils in Providence demonstrated against the appropriately named NECAP tests, which failed 60% of students in their town.
