about us

Thank You from FairTest

As the winter holidays near, all of us at FairTest extend our warmest thanks to everyone working for fair, open and educational sound testing at the local, state and national levels.

We especially appreciate the generous year-end donations so many of you have made in response to Diane Ravitch's special appeal on our behalf.

FairTest in the News - June 2010

Friday's New York Times gives FairTest the lead reaction quote in a story about how high-stakes testing pressures cause some educators to cheat on standardized tests.


The article, (also posted on the nytimes.com home page), includes a link to our website, which has already generated dozens of visitor referrals.  This is the fifth or sixth time the nation's leading newspaper has quoted FairTest this year.
