New York April 6: Students across New York talking about states mandated standardized Common Core tests on Tuesday. It is a big issue now in the world of education. Last year about 20% of the students opted out of examination.

Carol Burris a former New York high school principal who is now executive director of the nonprofit Network for Public Education.  Burris was named the 2010 Educator of the Year by the School Administrators Association of New York State. The same organization named her the New York State High School Principal of the Year.

According to the Carol, She said that New York State had rocked the world of test-based reform last year.When the quarter of a million students opted out of the Grades 3 to 8 Common Core tests. Despite insults directed at opt-out parents by many in the New York media. Test refusals have exploded again in this year too. Parents want to see relief in the classroom from inappropriate standards. The tests need to be helpful for children. The Education Transformation Act needs to be repealed test and punish must end.

Stephen Sigmund, Director of High Achievement New York said that this year’s tests will be fairer. He has been taunting Opt Out parents portraying them as unreasonable and unwilling “to take yes for an answer.”  As the number rolls from the first day of testing, one wonders if Sigmund and his backers will take “no” for an answer—clearly parents who say “no to the test” have not been persuaded.
