When the opt-out movement first gained traction in 2014, it was initially dismissed by some educational policymakers as a movement primarily taken up by middle-class white families concerned that new standardized tests would reveal their children to be lower-achieving than once thought. Data from New York, for example, suggests that those opting out tended to come from more affluent areas and are more likely to be white.
However, data from Ohio have shown a much more inclusive movement, representative of the state population. Early evidence from 2016 suggests that the movement has been gaining momentum in communities of color – the Seattle chapter of the NAACP issued a statement in support of opting out, and principals in New York City have publicly voiced support for giving parents the right to opt out.
It was ridiculous from the get go and its even more ridiculous to this very day. This isn't teaching this is the DUMBING DOWN THE FUTURE OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY! and its on purpose. Why wait till November I wish this administration would pack up and leave today, and take all your mission soldiers with you.
The day this administration leaves office every school teacher and administrator should be fired on the spot!
