Federal Government Ends Standardized Test Requirements For 2020
United States President Donald Trump has announced that his Department of Education will not be enforcing Standardized Testing for this school year.
This is a major move for teachers, students, and parents across the Untied States, whose school years have been interrupted by the COVID-19, or coronavirus, outbreak. Schools in Louisiana remain on a break until April 13th, at the earliest. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has already suspended the state's requirement for total number of school days required to have a full school year.
With the moves being made by the US Department of Education, and the moves being made at the state level, it could clear a path for the 2019-2020 school year to be ended. That decision has not been made yet, but this makes it a strong possibility.
