State Democrats Want To Cancel STAAR Test


The Texas House Democratic Caucus is calling for the cancellation of this year's STAAR test. In a virtual news conference on Wednesday, the caucus renewed its calls for a "hold harmless" policy that won't penalize schools and students for canceling the test during the pandemic. The Texas Education Agency ordered public-school students to take the STAAR test in-person. The agency's guidelines allow some districts to apply for waivers to socially-distance test takers and administer the test at monitored off-campus sites.
