ABILENE, Texas -

For many parents who believe Texas public school students are being over tested, Tuesday may be their last chance to participate in an informational meeting in Abilene.  

Abilene grassroots group "Friends of Public Education" will present the meeting at 7 pm at the Abilene Public Library on Mockingbird Lane.   

The meeting is for parents who were unable to attend last months two morning sessions.  

Early this year, a movement was launched by parents in Texas who believe the state relies too much on standardized testing and it is having a negative impact on public school students.
