Ann Dornfeld at KUOW is looking for parents who are considering opting out of testing (or have previously opted out) - looking for insights.
206.221.7082 or firstname.lastname@example.org
She'd like to hear from folks by 3 p.m. if possible.
Also, to note, there is a new website, Opt Out of State Standardized Tests. They want to provide information for parents in all states and are looking for volunteers to work on the page for their own state.
As well, the ACLU is collecting letters where schools/districts may have violated the rights of parents/students. (Some of these letters are pretty bad. Clearly, some principals feel very threatened by this action. One letter I saw when the SPS route ( a la MAP and AL) and told those parents opting out that their students might not have access to advanced classes without test scores.)
