46% of Long Is students opted out of ELA exam this week

More than 66,500 Long Island students - 46% of those eligible- opted out of NYS ELA exam this week. Bet you their parents are glad they did given exams' excessive length & train-wreck of computer-based testing.

Folks,
 
Thank you for being allies in the fight against the NYS Testing Program.
 
Here's my Op-Ed in today's DN.  It's a recent broad stroke history of disastrous NYS testing in the Common Core - Tisch - John King - Elia era.  A program that has no redeeming features.  I'm trying to get it out to parents and potential test resistors.
