CPS urging juniors not to boycott state test
Chicago Public Schools officials are asking students not to take part in a demonstration Wednesday.
A group of students are expected to protest school closures outside the Chicago Board of Education.
But, Wednesday is also when Juniors are scheduled to take the state-mandated PSAE test.
It’s required to move onto Senior year, and to graduate.
The test is also used to evaluate teachers and schools.
CPS sent home letters and made robocalls urging juniors not to miss the test.
