High Functioning Autistic Child Tested Against Wishes of Parents
Yesterday, we reported that a family in Georgia had been escorted out of their school by police when they had exercised their parental rights to refuse standardized testing. Those parents had concerns over data collection and data mining of their children’s information. Additionally, they never had opportunity to voice their approval/disapproval of this radical educational reform system, known as Common Core Standards.
Numerous parent calls were made to the principal and superintendent in support of that family. The Finneys did look into filing a lawsuit but it appears the school is backing down and coming to their senses.
Now it comes to light, that In another part of the same school district, other parents had properly written opt out notifications to their principals. Irregardless, they were tested completely against the wishes of the parents. The story below is about a child with high functioning autism.
In this case, the actions of the Marietta school district show a disdain for the rule of law and for the very people that they serve. The following series of electronic communications clearly shows a disturbing administrative viewpoint and trend among numerous school in our country. The parents stood their ground and cited both state and federal law. Know your state and federal laws!
