Colonial School District Board of Education Okays Parent Opt Out

Last night, at the Colonial School District Board of Education meeting, the board members discussed the issue of parent opt out of standardized testing and determined it was okay for parents to give a letter to the principal and the principal should approve the request.

The Colonial Board is very concerned about the nature of high-stakes testing, and even put a page up on their website to show parents how confusing the questions are on the Smarter Balanced Assessment.  This is brilliant!  All school districts need to get this on their websites and all Delaware parents should see this!

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. That’s Colonial actually shilling for SBAC by posting the DESSA document. You know, the same folks that ginned up the two page “threatdown” letter AGAINST opt out.
