Refuse the New York State standardized tests grades 3-8

New York Schools With Many Students Who Skipped Tests Won’t Lose Money

Threats have abounded both at the state and federal level that schools would lose money if parents/students REFUSED the state tests.  We now have official word from New York State Board of Regents Chancellor Tisch that schools will not be penalized by either the federal or state government because parents exercised their rights and REFUSED the state tests.

As recently as last week, the state education commissioner, MaryEllen Elia, said that she was not sure if the federal Education Department would withhold money from districts with high opt-out rates. She declined to rule out the possibility that the state would do so on its own.
