A06777 NY Senate Opt Out Bill – In a Readable Format

WhyDad.net It looks like we are getting closer to some kind of bill from Albany regarding parent opt out rights with a controversial bill introduced by Catherine Nolan.  Jim Tedesco claims  portions of his bill were plagiarized to create the Nolan bill below.

His main concern is the new bill leaves out the requirement that parents are notified of their rights. We liked that part of the Tedesco bill, we also like a portion of Catherine Nolan’s bill that directly addresses protections for parents who opt out in section 3 below. Unfortunately those protections are extended to people who have a vested interest in the results (or lack of). This problem along with Jim Tedesco’s observation makes this bill in need of revision.

Delaware PTA – opt out is a personal decision – will address concerns of fear and intimidation

 

It was suggested that our concerns of incentivizing fear and coercion for vested interests were poorly conceived…

 

On  3/24/2015, the Delaware PTA issued a statement in support of a parents right to opt out of the Smarter Balanced Assessments.

 

 “Delaware PTA will not encourage any parent to opt their child out of the test. We firmly believe each decision and subsequent reason for opting out is unique. We also firmly believe that this is a personal decision that must be made by the parental unit.”

 Later on in the statement, they felt it necessary to include this language:

“Address parent/teacher concerns of fear and/or intimidation regarding the parent opt out”

The Delaware Opt Out movement seemed to be happy with the positions taken by their PTA “This is a HUGE step in the opt out movement Delaware parents! “

 

Hats off to the Delaware PTA for their willingness to recognize all of the concerns raised by their members.

Think Before Signing The Common Core Parental Refusal Act Petition

cautionwhydad

 

In the Facebook group Stop Common Core In New York State, parents have begun posting a variety of allegations concerning direct discussions between teachers and students regarding the NY standardized tests. Some of them are quoted below:

 

 

 

  • “My son (5th grade) comes home from school and tells me that his teacher is practically begging him to talk me into changing my mind about refusing the tests. Apparently she’s worried that none of her other students (he’s in a 12:1) will be able to pass the tests and she knows that my son will (and he would, but it’s so not the point). Where does she get off begging my son and making him feel guilty about doing exactly what his mother told him to do!!”
  • “Mom I don’t want to take the standardized tests this year. My teacher said we can opt out and all you need to do is write a refusal letter.””

In our article titled Superintendent Paladino was right for the wrong reasons , we commented that it was wrong for teachers to talk directly to parents about the tests when they have a vested interest in the results. We suggested that doing this would inadvertently remove a parents right to refuse without fear, coercion or worse. As a hypothetical example, we put forth this scenario:

 

… imagine you are a parent and your child’s teacher talks to you about test refusals.  After the conversation, what do you do if you were planning on your child taking the test?  If you allow the test to be taken anyway, will this teacher take it out on your child at school? Will the last regular grade of the year be mysteriously low? Will your child be marked as testing trouble by other teachers in the future?

The negative mental questions a parent can think of are limitless.  As a parent, your only logical choice is to refuse the test to avoid any questionable activity by the teacher now or in the future

 

Constitutional Questions.

 

The Bill of Rights guarantees every American citizen a variety of individual freedoms that may be enjoyed without fear, coercion or reprisal from the government. Teachers are government employees and if the above allegations are true, they may have instilled a coercive atmosphere into children and their parents.  There should be no protection for this kind of activity as it is a breeding ground for government corruption and tyranny.

 

The Common Core Parental Refusal Act Expands The Problem.

 

In NY, a few well meaning politicians have written a bill to dispel the confusion surrounding parental rights in refusing test participation by ensuring parents are aware of their right to refuse. An action that is nearly moot at this point unless you live in a cave. Nonetheless, a required statement like this will certainly serve as a reminder of parental rights long after this controversy settles down.

The real problem lies within a sentence on the petition website produced by these politicians:

The bill protects teachers from being penalized in their evaluations due to a lack of student participation

We believe the statement nearly guarantees (and incentivizes) teachers will turn up their attempts to persuade children and parents to refuse a test instead of placing their monetary & labor concerns where they belong; with their union representatives who are supposed to negotiate with elected public servants who represent the interests of people.  As we have said before, refusing the state tests should remain a personal choice and right without influence from teachers and administrators who have a vested interest in the results.

 

In conclusion, we would hope the writers of this petition consider the rights guaranteed to all Americans are not be used as a bargaining chip in an Albany labor dispute.

Voorheesville Central School District Teacher Absenteeism Report. – 26.8%

moneycapBelow is a breakdown of teacher absence costs for the Voorheesville Central School District. These numbers were reported to various Federal and State agencies in 2011-2012. To our knowledge, they have never been compiled in this manner. The individual district results can vary widely with some being very normal and others seeming to be completely out of normal. In some cases, public school teachers may be very sick. In other cases where up to 100% of the teachers are taking 10+ days off, there may be a serious systemic problem. Statewide concerns should be addressed directly to NY education officials and legislators. Those results are far beyond what normal should be as the Charter school totals suggest.  As always we encourage parents and taxpayers to share this information.

 

District 2011-2012 details:

  • Name: Voorheesville Central School District
  • County: Albany
  • Spending: $21,266,222.00

  • Local tax applied per student: $12,813.83
  • Mandatory school year: 180 days

 

Thoughts to consider.

The results below should be higher as they only include information on fulltime Voorheesville Central School District teacher absences. A more accurate and much larger number would also include absences of the administration and other employees plus other costs such as health/welfare insurance. Additionally, our breakdown is based on the reported number of “10 or more days” and does not include exact absences beyond 10 days or amounts for teachers taking less than 10 days.  We ask that you treat these numbers as a starting point for a discussion with local district officials if you feel the Voorheesville Central School District results are abnormal.
