We all want to do what is right for our children, their teachers and their schools. However, that means different things to different people. Every student and family is unique. As families make these decisions, we urge everyone to respect all parents and students whether they choose to take or refuse the test. Everyone should be treated equally in a respectful manner no matter what that decision is.
In the next few weeks NYS PTA will be publishing a statement about “What’s next for education in New York?” It will discuss what direction we will urge the decision makers to take around many hot topics affecting the ability of all children in New York to receive an equitable and excellent education.
