For most of us, this time of year means the hope of warm weather and baseball season coming soon. But for thousands of NYC students and teachers, it’s time for the stress of State Testing. The pressure for both students and teachers builds each year. Now, school funding, teachers’ jobs, and middle school and high school acceptance for students all are effected by the performance of kids in 3rd through 8th grades. Please pray for students and teachers this week as they prepare for the first week of testing on April 1-3.
