Call Congress to Support Child Abuse Reduction Act

We, at Fairtest/AFT/NEA/NPE believe that the best and "fairest" way to curry favor with the education-industrial complex, and thus assure our continued place under the policy table, is to support the plan led by Senator Lamar Alexander to assure another generation of lucrative abuse in the form of high stakes tests for children. 

We know that child abuse should be illegal, but we cannot bring ourselves to say that to the powers on Capitol Hill and at the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, where decisions are made that could affect the financial viability of our macro and micro fiefdoms. 

We hope all teachers and parents will join our effort to make sure child abuse is practiced only during odd numbered years.

Thank you for your continuing support, and please send your check to NPE/NEA/AFT/Fairtest so that our good work will be uninterrupted.
