The Opt Out Movement

As Common Core aligned tests have been implemented in states around the country this year, the Opt Out Movement has gained traction.  I first became aware of the New York Opt Out Movement through college friends on Facebook.  According to the latest figures, approximately 175,000 students across New York State have opted out of this year's testing.  Diane Ravitch, former Assistant Secretary of Education and Merryl Tisch, New York State Education Chancellor recently met to debate the ramifications of the Opt Out Movement.  Check it out below.
