Educator’s Refusal to Give PARCC Called Into Question by District

Last fall, a suburban Denver public schools educator  took to her blog and addressed a manifesto of sorts to the “citizens of Colorado.” “I am writing to let you know that I will be refusing to administer the PARCC in the 2014-15 school year,” Robertson wrote, referring to new math and English tests debuting in Colorado schools this week.

The veteran educator is a co-founder of United Opt Out, a national group that has been organizing local meetings and citing cases of parents refusing tests being intimidated by school officials.
