To the editor
The editors of the Olympian have falsely represented the position of Mothers Against WASL. Our members believe strongly in high expectations and quality public education for all students. This is the reason we oppose WASL as a high-stakes test and the driver of school policy and curriculum.
Juanita Doyon, Director, Mothers Against WASL
