It’s not just inner city kids like the members of the Providence Student Union who are speaking out against the NECAP test. East Greenwich High School Principal Michael Podraza tweeted a picture today of a school notice about the high stakes test that he suspects a student added some choice words.
“I am an individual,” was written on the Principal Podraza’s note about the NECAP requirement. “I am not defined by a number. Stop pigeonholing us. What about the others.”
And here’s the picture of the handout, which says, “As you know, the NECAP has become even more important, in that all students are required to demonstrate at least partial proficiency on the Math and Reading portions of the exam in order o graduate from high school.”
