Concerned educators and parents have come together to create brand-new, easy-to-find, state-by-state groups on Facebook where parents, educators, and anyone who cares, can come together to mobilize and take back control of their children’s freedom to learn. You can join others interested in opting out in your state in two ways:
1) Type in the search: Opt out of State Standardized Tests — Your State i.e. Opt Out of State Standardized Tests – Ohio
2) Go to the page url: https://www.facebook.com/groups/OptOutYourState i.e.https://www.facebook.com/groups/OptOutOhio
As more and more parents get on board and take back control of what is best for their children, new possibilities will arise. Imagine a learning environment without unnecessary testing…
What could your child accomplish when the billions of wasted testing dollars are redirected toward students?
When passion, not just tests, can drive the learning, what learning might start to take shape in our schools and communities across our nation?"
