I will be opting my son and daughter out of the State Tests (NY)  this year for various reasons.

Any other moms out there who are either opting out or thinking about opting out of the Sate Test?

Didn't know you could opt out, unless you homeschool

While I agree that the testing is pointless, why would you set such a poor example for your child? You have to do lots of pointless things in life and you can't always "opt out."

In NC, homeschoolers are not allowed to opt out either.

I wish I could. My daughter is in danger or repeating the 3rd grade if she fails the state test. And so is half her class
