College Fix has more on this:

Jamaal Bowman, principal of the intriguingly named Cornerstone Academy for Social Action, wrote in blog entry back in late August that standardized testing “is a form of modern-day slavery, and it is designed to continue the proliferation of inequality.”

“America was born of horror for black people and that horror continues today for brown and poor people as well. Slavery, Jim Crow, redlining, crack cocaine and now standardized testing were all sanctioned by the American government. All designed to destroy the mind, body and soul of black and brown people,” he added.
