Texas State Teachers Association President Rita Haecker issued the following statement:

“Today, the House Public Education Committee is hearing several bills, including HB5 by Chairman Aycock, which would reduce the use of high-stakes, standardized testing as a singular measure of accountability in our public schools. The Texas State Teachers Association appreciates the attention being given to these bills early in the session.

“The Legislature needs to restore the emphasis on teaching and learning -- not test-taking -- in our children’s classrooms.”
