The Garfield High School in Seattle have boycotted the standardized MAP tests, not handing in them to the students. This action had a great repercussion and people still talk about whether is good or not to make students take standardized tests for measuring their capacities. A point that Jesse Hagopian, graduate of Garfield High and spokesperson for the boycott said that ‘’ None of us is against accountability or rigor, we just want assessments that reflect what we teach in the classroom and that mold our students into successful participants in our various communities.‘’ What he said makes all the sense in the world. Why would you want your students to take tests that don’t reflect what they are currently learning. Its just normal to have a customized test for each learning method each school utilizes. Another interesting aspect of this boycott was that the local PTSA, and the student senate of Seattle also approved the refusal of the MAP tests.
