  •  We just learned about opt-out in our state (0+ / 0-)

    We gave our 6th grader the choice.  We told her she was welcome to take the test and that however it came out it didn't matter to us at all because it was meaningless to us.  We know her well enough to know that she's doing fine in school and she needn't stress.

    We also told her if she felt any pressure over it, or she didn't want to take it, that was also fine.  She could opt-out and we would back her up.
