Delaware has no specific laws prohibiting parents from opting-out re: state standardized test @destateboarded @dedeptofed @foxnews @huffingtonpost @washingtonpost @arneduncan @DoverPost

I challenge anyone to provide a link to a Delaware or Federal Laws specifically prohibiting parents from opting their children out of state standardized test!

Though the federal law requires the states to test there is nothing in the way of prohibiting parents from opting out! Don’t get confused with what the feds say the states must do in regards to testing with law prohibiting parents from opting-out! There are none!

PROVE ME WRONG !!! SHOW ME A DELAWARE LAW THAT STATES “PARENTS CANNOT OPT-OUT THEIR CHILDREN” AND I’ll DELETE THIS BLOG!

H.B.#50 “This bill creates the right for the parent or guardian of a child to opt out of the annual assessment”. If there were a law prohibiting opting H.B.#50 would be amending it.

  2. Jaques does more for the opt out movement whenever he gets near the media. I really need to get down to Legislative Hall this week…

  3. Since my kids don’t have to deal with all the testing in public schools I have a question – do the test have any bearing on college acceptance?

      No. State testing has no bearing on college admission. The only standardized test that colleges look at ate SAT or ACT. Some colleges now are not even requiring those.

    • Not that I’ve seen, Arthur, and we just went through this process – My daughter graduates this year.

      The school’s guidance counselor has to complete a form for the college applicant. Those forms can vary from college to college. Here’s the Common Apps. There are others online, and none, that I’ve seen, ask for these tests scores.

    • No Arthur, these tests are meaningless for college application. The colleges look at SAT/ACT scores, high school transcripts, high school extracurriculars, and recommendation letters. Each high school is assigned a weighting to the transcript according to its reputation (at least at more selective schools), and the transcripts are often re-weighted based on course selection (if you have a 4.0 but didn’t take Physics or Calculus or a language then you will rate out less well than somebody with a 3.6 who took all of the above).

      Standardized tests likes Smarter Balanced or NAEP or any of the others are NOT EVEN REPORTED to colleges.

    • No. Absolutely not. Ever since the founder of Common Core took over the SAT’s, most renowned schools have now quietly dropped it too as a requirement…. These tests have only one function which is to create havoc within public school systems across the country and through that, open markets for private investment in what was previously a closed-off trillion dollar (rounded up) market.

    • Most renowned schools? Not in my experience. Altho, I can see that happening in the future.

    • No, kavips, while there is a growing number of schools that no longer require the SAT, most of the “more selective” and “most selective” schools still do.
