Denver Billboard Urges Parents to Opt Out of State Testing

The Coalition for Better Education, a nonprofit started in 2004 by a group of aspiring teachers to push for the elimination of the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP), has put up billboards in the Denver area to urge parents to opt out of testing. The main emphasis of the group is to let parents know the dates of the high-stakes tests so that they can keep their children home.

According to gazette.com, the head of the CBE stated, “We’ve been successful if even one parent sees the light in what this high-stakes testing is doing to their child. We want parents to know that they have the last say in their children’s education.”
