Opt-Out of Testing? What Happens Next? - Leadership 360 - Education Week

Opt-Out of Testing? What Happens Next? - Leadership 360 - Education Week:

"A growing number of parents are refusing to have their children take the high stakes tests that are being given in schools across the country. They will keep their children home on test day or request the child not be tested. They view this action as a way of pushing back against over-testing of students and the anxiety some children experience in the high stakes environment. We cannot pick up a newspaper, or magazine, or search a blog, without reading about testing children. Now, jobs of teachers and principals are tied to the results."
