Boycotting Tests Is Helping Stop Common Core


Across the country, parents and public school students are slowing the Common Core’s progress by refusing to take Common Core-aligned assessments. These efforts have caused some school administrators to cancel standardized testing.

Examples of the trend are plentiful in Washington, New York, Illinois, Oregon, Colorado, and Rhode Island. In one Washington school district, more than 80% of the parents refused to let their 4-year-olds take a “bubble style” test that is required by state law for teacher evaluations. The principal canceled the tests, because it would have been impossible to collect meaningful data.
