Opting Out

Recently the United Opt Out movement has been gaining some steam as many states are gearing up for standardized testing.  This movement is beginning to take root in the community that we work in along with the communities that any of us reside in.  This movement describes itself as follows…

Members of this site are parents, educators, students and social activists who are dedicated to the elimination of high stakes testing in public education. We use this site to collaborate, exchange ideas, support one another, share information and initiate collective local and national actions to end the reign of fear and terror promoted by the high stakes testing agenda.

This blog first mentioned this movement back on January 22nd.  Certainly if you are a parent of school aged children who will be taking the upcoming tests you may be interested in exploring this further.
