Seattle Sun Times one of the few newspapers to say why opting out is taking place.

Submitted to:

Nearly every newspaper story I have read about opting out of common core tests fails to include the reasons why many parents across the country are refusing these tests for their children. "More Seattle students are expected to deny Common Core testing," (April 8) is a welcome exception. The tests are indeed too hard, with passing levels set much too high, resulting in high failure rates that do not reflect reality. Also, as the Sun Times points out, the tests are an inaccurate measures of students' abilities: The tests are based on a rigid, incompletely researched and often developmentally inappropriate set of standards.
Parents across the country are not protesting all testing; they are protesting the common core testing program.

  1. I am ROSE SMITH from CANADA a single parent, before my husband died he left us with so much DEBT that we could not cope with life, I was totally confused on what to do. When I was going through the internet I came across a POST by MARCUS CAFE about how Mrs JULIA NAVARO help him to get a loan so I applied for the loan from JULIA NAVARO through her mail ( of $200,000 with a duration of 10 years. When I was applying for the loan I made a vow to GOD that if I get the loan I will let the world know what she did for me, to my greatest surprise my loan was granted with
    an interest of 2%. I was able to settle my debt and start up a new life and business with a settled family. So if you want any type of loan for as low as 2% please contact JULIA NAVARO on her mail just fulfilled my vow.
