Teachers Opt Own Children Out of Testing

“Some states have laws and policies that allow parents to opt their children out.  Tennessee does not.  Yet…  

There is currently a Bill in the Legislature that, if it passes, would allow parents to legally Opt-Out of testing for their children without penalties (HB 1841 / SB 2221) .  The Bill’s sponsor, Rep. Gloria Johnson, is also a teacher.


 (Unfortunately, a half a BILLION dollar fiscal note has been attached to the bill, and the bill has been rolled to the final calendar to prevent it from passing.  Contact Governor Haslam if you’re not happy about that.  His phone # is 615-741-2001 and his email is: bill.haslam@tn.gov). “
