CTS will be leading the opt-out battle here in NYC this coming testing season. Teachers should realize that with the Cuomo anti-teacher pro-charter assault, one of their few methods of defense is by supporting the opt-out movement -- no data, no ineffective ratings. While opt-out might not work at the secondary school level, for elementary school teachers providing parents with opt-out info can have a long-term effect. See the video at CTS: NYC Parents Talk about Why They’re Refusing the Tests and download 12 Reasons to Opt Out (pdf) to share with parents.
