Next spring, kindergarten through 12th-grade students across California will be tested to see if they meet new Common Core standards, and many districts will also continue testing for their own local standards.
Last spring, Chula Vista Elementary School District gave two big tests to its students, and they might have violated state mandates to make testing modifications for students with disabilities.
Testing dominates the school year now. Students like fourth grader Abby Eten feel the stress. Abby said she feels like a rubber band.
“If I keep on stretching it and stretching it, it’s going to break,” she said.
Abby has more challenges than other fourth graders: She’s dyslexic. Abby’s mother, Justina Eten, said she’s always surprised by how smart her daughter is.
