CEA Releases New Survey of Teachers on SBAC
Teachers from across the state are sounding the alarm about the negative effects of SBAC on the social and emotional well-being of children. According to the initial findings of a new survey of K-12 teachers in Connecticut, the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) testing is having a detrimental impact on children—from anger and frustration to crying—and creates an obstacle to teaching and learning.
At a news conference at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford today, CEA President Sheila Cohen said teachers’ concerns must be heeded or our children will develop disdain and apathy toward education instead of cultivating a love of learning.
Watch Cohen discuss the survey of Connecticut teachers on SBAC.
