Wake up, Utah parents.
Diane Ravitch recently posted a letter from a Utah teacher who tried to let parents know that they ought to opt children out of the Common Core AIR/SAGE standardized tests. The teacher said that she was stopped, and was told she was not allowed to tell parents that they have a legal right to opt out. The state would take disciplinary measures against the teacher’s license, she was told, if she continued to tell parents the truth.
The teacher wrote, “So how do parents even know what is being done to their children?” They don’t.
