Freeport Public Schools announced they will not accept parent letters to opt their student out of assessments, students are expected to verbally refuse.
The number of kids refusing to take Common Core-aligned assessments in New York this spring will far surpass the number of students who did so last year.
I missed this gem of a video from Change the Stakes last spring. What these New York City parents have to say about testing however is just as applicable this school year. It’s important for parents to take a stand for their students. Watch below or here.
