Thousands of families agree that these tests are very HARMFUL to their children, and yet Mr. Trabucco incentivizes child participation. Last year, parents of 60,000 children refused to allow their children to participate in these tests. Hundreds of school boards have adopted resolutions stating that these tests adversely affect children. Yet Mr. Trabucco will pit these children directly against their parents by giving prizes to those who participate all so that his school will look good on paper.
This is a destructive policy to divide families that must be stopped. Educated and responsible parents refuse to allow their children to participate in harmful Common Core test, but the school principal will give prizes to the children if they disobey their parents.
