Opt-Out: Believe the DNC and Hillary – OR – John King, the Secretary of Education?
These are facts, not opinions.
Secretary of Education John King will financially penalize schools and districts when parents opt-out of high stakes standardized testing for their children. John King is appointed by President Obama.
The DNC and Hillary will guarantee the rights of parents opt-out of high stakes standardized tests with no penalty for children, parents, schools or teachers.
“Thanks to collaboration between Clinton and Sanders drafters and platform committee members, the public education plank in the Democratic platform represents a refreshing sea change in its approach to public education, to the students we serve, and to the parents and educators who work so hard to give all our children the opportunity they deserve.”
“We also support enabling parents to opt their children out of standardized tests without penalty for either the student or their school.” See the source and links HERE and HERE.
