Teachers also reported that their students lack the computer skills needed to succeed on the exams, the group said.

“The Department of Education told us that schools are ready to implement the computerized version of Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers,” Steve Monaghan, president of the Louisiana Federation of Teachers, said in a prepared statement.

“Teachers are telling us a very different story,” Monaghan said.
