Some parents opt out of state tests
(Page 3 of 3)

When asked by reporters for comment on the opt-out movement, Governor Andrew Cuomo said, “I’ve heard both sides of the argument. I understand the controversy. The state education department is the entity that is in charge. It’s not my place to side with the students who are opting out… Has there ever been a student who says, I love tests? I hated tests, but it’s the nature of the beast. I understand that there are parents who feel that we are testing too much, but that’s part of the process.”
