Maryland Teachers Union Launches Ad Campaign Against Too Many Standardized Tests.

The Washington Post (8/31, Wiggins) reports the Maryland Education Association launched a statewide advertising campaign called “Less Testing, More Learning” to reduce the amount of standardized tests teachers administer to students. The half-million, month-long campaign includes “two weeks of television commercials” on local stations, as well as “radio and digital advertisements.” Stephen Hershkowitz, a spokesman for the teachers union, “said the campaign is part of the union’s plan to make over-testing a priority in the 2016 General Assembly session.”
