Los Angeles Teachers Boycott Tests

By Octavia Davis

In the spring of 2009, many Los Angeles teachers refused to submit the results of students’ standardized tests to the school district. The United Teachers of Los Angeles, a labor union, believes that testing wastes money and time. The teachers want to spend the $150 million budgeted for tests on more teachers and better programs. The boycott ended in July when the union and district agreed to discuss changes in testing.
