The Board of Education for the Capital School District passed a resolution at their meeting tonight to allow parents to opt their children out of standardized testing. This is a major victory, not just for Capital, but the entire state. This is the shot heard round the world for education in this state. This is a district saying no to the DOE. This is a district saying parents have a choice in their child’s education. I wish I was there for it, but I am still very happy! I will update this as I get more information!
Just heard, it was a unanimous vote with all three of the attending board members. Two were missing, but I have a strong feeling it still would have passed had the other two been there. At the very least, a 4-1 vote. Awesome!
