More Pennsylvania Parents Keep Children Out During Testing

KYW-TV Philadelphia (4/11, Loeb) reports, "A growing number of parents are asking to have their children excused from the PSSA standardized assessment tests, being given this week to third through eighth graders throughout Pennsylvania." The decision is said to be "part of a growing national trend." And "in Pennsylvania, parents exercising the opt-out option went from 71 in 2010 to 256 last year, and the state expects more to opt out this year."
