The Delaware PTA created a petition on Change.org to support the override of Delaware Governor Markell’s veto of House Bill 50. HB50 is legislation codifying a parent’s right to opt their child out of standardized assessments. It passed the Delaware House and Senate with an overwhelming majority. House Bill 50 does not “allow” a parent to opt-out, despite what other media may have written in the past. Parents already own that right. This bill honors that right and protects them and schools from bullying and intimidation when an opt-out choice is made by a parent.

Once you sign, please copy and paste the link and share it on Facebook, Twitter, email or anywhere you can think of. Our legislators need to hear our voice on this issue. This will be presented to all the legislators in the Delaware House of Representatives and the Delaware Senate to lend support for the crucial vote.
Thank you Delaware PTA for making this happen!!!!!!!!!
