    Parents you have a CHOICE. OPT OUT!! Let me ask you do you think reducing the length of these high-stakes standardized tests is going to take away from the fact that these test are still unethical? These tests are harming our children, teachers, schools, the whole community. Are you okay allowing your child to participate in these high-stakes tests?
