Poll: Will You Opt-Out Your Child From Smarter Balanced Assessment Tests or PARCC? #netde #eduDE @KilroysDelaware @ed_in_de @BadassTeachersA

Parents have already done it, written a letter to their child’s school stating their child will not be taking the standardized test this school year.  Many are contemplating it.  Some don’t think it matters.  What do you think?  Please take this poll.  If you are a special needs parent, please check the appropriate box.

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!

  1. I would not oot out simply because the kids need to get used to taking tests under pressure. I wont necessarily put all my faith in the test results but taking them is a part of life. You cant opt out of sat or act if you hope to go to college. I personally think that accommodating the kids too much teaches them to give up and not try as hard because they have an excuse. This is my personal experience with my 12 yr old. She is amazing and doing so much better without all the crutches. Dont underestimate your kids as I did. They just might surprise you!
