Across the country, teachers and students have been forced to disrupt regular academic classroom time to prepare and review for the Common Core-aligned PARCC tests.

Meanwhile, here’s another way school districts have become “NO PARCC-ing” zones: Internet and computer crashes.
More failure means more waste.
Better luck next time, kid…
