Tell Beacon Hill: LESS Testing, MORE Learning

Tuesday, June 9, is Contact Your Legislators Day. Call your state representative’s and state senator’s offices to tell your own story about testing and urge their support for House bill 340, An Act Relative to a Moratorium on High-Stakes Testing and PARCC.

With a patch-through system set up by the MTA, you can call your legislators anytime, 24 hours a day, until Thursday, June 11, when the bill will be heard before the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Education.

To use the patch-through system, simply call 617.299.7542 and follow the instructions. When prompted, enter your ZIP code and then the # sign. The system will connect you to a legislator’s office – either your representative or senator. More information and background resources for Contact Your Legislator Day can be found here.
