Texas Students are not prepared for the STAAR Tests
The Texas School Districts do not prepare your children to take the STAAR Tests.
Think About This:
If your child is in the 5th grade, the STAAR tests cover all the 5th grade TEKS.
The STAAR tests are given in April of each school year.
1. Has your child studied the entire 5th grade math, reading, science, and social studies TEKS before the STAAR tests are given? NO!
2. There is more than 6-wks of school after the STAAR tests. What is your child doing at school after the STAAR testing is completed?
3. Are Texas students failing STAAR tests because they have not been introduced to the concepts on the tests?
Parents —Your child is not ready to take a test over 5th grade science in April.
If all the 5th grade science TEKS can be taught prior to the STAAR testing in April, then students do not need to attend 180 days of school.
