Nashua board moves ahead with Smarter Balance test
Ziehm said other states have provided options and alternatives to Common Core-based testing and she questioned why New Hampshire wasn’t also offering school districts another choice.
Ziehm also said the test contradicted the district’s mission to accommodate student diversity.
“The test makes no provision for diversity, it’s one size shoe fits all,” she said.
“Because you are the second largest school district, it would almost force the state to take action,” Bennett told board members.
Murotake said Bennett’s opinion, which was packed with case law, was helpful in understanding how to frame and express opposition to certain state laws and mandates.
