Did You Opt Your Child Out Of The Smarter Balanced Assessment Today? Many Have! Join The Club!

I am happily hearing many parents in Delaware submitted opt-out letters to schools today.  This has become even more important than it was yesterday, for reasons that will be revealed in the next 24 hours.  Opt-out is a parental right, pure and simple.  It is also a choice.  I will make very clear why parents need to exercise that choice very soon.  There are huge games going on, and we are merely pawns.  The key to making the change for your child’s education and future is opt-out.  Please opt your child out of the Smarter Balanced assessment immediately, if not sooner.  Your child is becoming a victim of one of the most craftily laid plans I have ever seen.  But this plan has its cracks and they are so small and tiny, if you didn’t see the big picture it wouldn’t even dawn on you.  It is way more than we ever imagined and answers all the questions about why Delaware is so insistent on harsh opt-out penalties against our schools while other states are not.  The convergence is upon us…
