MORE's Katie and Lauren in the house - NYC councilman Danny Dromm's statement about a parent's right to opt out

MORE's Katie Lapham and Lauren Cohen
Katie is running for Elementary school Exec Bd and Lauren is running for VP of elementary schools. Can you imagine how the UFT would change if they were elected? Actually Katie has a better chance because retirees don't vote in the elementary school elections.


NYC councilman Danny Dromm's statement about a parent's right to opt out.

Dear Friend,

From April 5th to April 7th, NYC public school students will be asked to take the NY State English Language Arts (ELA) exam. The following week, they will be asked to take the NY State math exam.

There is a lot of confusion and misinformation about whether students are required to take these tests. Parents should be aware that they have the right to make the decision to have their child opt out without retaliation from schools. Read this article to learn more about my stance on this issue.

The decision to opt out is a personal one. If you do choose to make this decision, you must write a letter to your child's principal. More information on how to opt out is available here.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact my office at 718-803-6373.

Sincerely,

Daniel Dromm
Chairperson
NYC Council Committee on Education
