“Testing May Discourage Parent Involvement, Study Finds”

Testing May Discourage Parent Involvement, Study Finds is the headline of an article in Heartland.

Here’s an excerpt:

Saying there was little research about how extensive testing in education impacted parental attitudes toward education, Jesse Rhodes studied the issue in early 2012.

Rhodes, an associate professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, found parents in states with more extensive assessment systems had more negative attitudes about education and were less likely to become engaged in their children’s learning.

I’m adding this info to “The Best Research Available On Parent Engagement.”
