These are facts, not opinions.
Secretary of Education John King will financially penalize schools and districts when parents opt-out of high stakes standardized testing for their children. John King is appointed by President Obama.
The DNC and Hillary will guarantee the rights of parents opt-out of high stakes standardized tests with no penalty for children, parents, schools or teachers.
“Thanks to collaboration between Clinton and Sanders drafters and platform committee members, the public education plank in the Democratic platform represents a refreshing sea change in its approach to public education, to the students we serve, and to the parents and educators who work so hard to give all our children the opportunity they deserve.”
“U.S. Education Secretary John B. King is pushing for new regulations that would penalize schools where large numbers of students refuse to take the tests.” See one source HERE.
We are expected to believe two opposites. This causes serious cognitive dissonance.
Do we believe what was and is being done or what is promised during an election campaign?
(Please do not make comments that Donald Trump is a demon who has no education plank in his platform. That is a given. The subject is what to believe regarding the Democratic National Committee and their candidate, Hillary Clinton.)
