Parental Opt Out bill Hijacked!
Leader of the Florida House Democrats, Mark Pafford, publicly urged parents to opt their students out of the tests. "I hope that parents take time to understand that their children are being subjected to tests that, in the end, don’t amount to much. The data that comes from those tests sometimes comes so late, it doesn’t matter. You have to question the purpose of these tests…If you’re opting children out of these tests, there’s a reason… Civil disobedience is beginning to rear its head…I applaud those parents who have the courage to do it."
