NYSUT demands SED take stand against abusive ‘sit and stare’ policy during testing

NYSUT demands SED take stand against abusive ‘sit and stare’ policy during testing.
March 3, 2014

Parents & teachers: take note of these important highlights of the press release:
“Iannuzzi is urging local union leaders to join with parents to advocate for district policies that provide a supportive testing environment for all students and constructive alternatives for students whose parents have opted them out of state testing.”

“While NYSUT does not encourage or discourage decisions by parents to “opt out” of state testing, the union strongly supports a parent’s right to “opt out” of state standardized tests if the parent believes state testing is inappropriate and may be harmful to his or her child.”

“With the next round of state assessments later this spring, Iannuzzi is calling on the State Education Department and Board of Regents to put an end to these “unconscionable” practices and provide clear guidelines to districts about how they should handle instances when parents choose to opt their children out of testing.”
