In her letter to the commissioner of education about the STAAR administration problems students and districts experienced during the last week of March 2016, TASA President Karen Rue, superintendent of Northwest ISD and co-chair of the Texas High Performance Schools Consortium Steering Committee, raised larger questions about accountability testing in Texas.

She asked if it is sustainable and even physically possible to continue with the one-size-fits-all testing “regime” currently in place.
