100% Student Walkout for Common Core SBAC Test at Seattle High School


Not a single 11th grade student showed up to take the SBAC test at Nathan Hale High School this week, a Seattle Public Schools spokesperson confirmed.

The news that 100% of the 11th graders opted out of the test was first reported on an education blog.

State Superintendent Randy Dorn released a statement Friday on the potential “fallout” from students opting out of testing. Dorn said there could be academic and financial consequences for the state of Washington if students don’t take the SBAC.

“No test is perfect. But the Smarter Balanced tests, with their emphasis on real-world skills, are better than any standardized test our state has administered before,” Dorn said in a statement.

He said without the testing results, educators will have a harder time identifying learning gaps in the student population and that results will be less reliable. Dorn also pointed to federal expectations, saying that without a 95% participation rate, the Department of Education could cut funding to schools and label Washington as “high risk.” (Read more from “No Juniors Show up to Take Common Core SBAC Test at Seattle High School” HERE)

This a good start way to go Washington State take a stand for truth and education, not indocternation. Holding money over schools is blackmail send the criminals to jail that hold funds from schools, talk is cheap and talk is all Obama has don't for education. As for the rest of the government he's destroying as he said he do. And his Left Wing Loons are helping to finish her off.

It's a proven fact that the common core testing is NOT for either teachers evaulation or government funding.But only to indoctrinate your kids.NY teachers have blasted the local school boards here telling them that the teachers do not see the test results from the students in their classes.Nor are the student taking the test are head counted for funding.

good for those students....Reading the comments of The superintendent they will lose money. What about the students concern? And what will the test prove? the answer the school board said it will see where the gaps are? what crap, most teachers could see where the gaps are just by observing the students in their everyday interaction. Besides I don't think the school cares as long as they get their money to pay the high salaries of their administrators.

This is not an isolated phenomena in Seattle.  I was a classroom teacher in our local school district for 28 years and this board of education has become increasingly more interested in passing tax increases and spending lavishly than actually educating the students.  It is a disgrace, but this is widespread and is characteristic of government organizations from city hall, to the local school board, right on up to and including the Congress of the United States and the White House under Obama.  The People (taxpayers) must say NO, otherwise the future of this country grows darker with each passing day.

All kids in America should walk out, that will royally screw obama and his demonrat zombies ;=)

The New York State opt out was talked about on WABC radio during the Kootis (SP?) and Curtis Sliwa show. Unfortunately, Sliwa (the more conservative host) thought it was bad that they opted out. A mother, a few days earlier, had called in to explain one reason why kids were opting out. She talked of "age inappropriate

material, but unfortunately she was poo poohed by Sliwa and not allowed to talk much. Also the New York Post, a conservative newspaper, did not get it either. They think Common Core is good because it measures a standard. They don't know the details!

The Government needs to attend to the things it's supposed to Constitutionally, as in National Defense, and get out of everything else they have inserted themselves into, especially education.

This proves 11th graders are far smarter then the leftist Politicians and School Administrators !!  "Common Core" is Indeed A method Of Brain Washing The Young Mind !!  It Is all Marxist and Given How It Was Used to Grow The Nazi Third Reich, We Must Not Accept it In America !!

Notice the warnings of stopping funding? It is our money sent from our State of residence and not the Feds! Just as this whole country is our country and belongs to her citizens! Citizens give government the funds to care for our parks and wild land. Feds and States have to have our approval for them to have any other authority other than to maintain them! A government gone wild with power and corruption! 

Think about it... they are stealing our rights using our own money as a threat!

Cutting funding is a good thing. If you are getting funds from some source you are a slave to that source. Don't cry about losing it but rather rejoice for your freedom is very near!

What this is saying is the Federal Government has overstepped their rights and trampled on States rights. We pay taxes to the Feds and then they trickle some back to the States for education! This setup what had to come, which is Federal control over our States and over parental rights! This is also an attack on homeschooling! It use to be said that one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch but with Fed control we are placing bad apples on the bunch without any good ones!

PC did not work and removed much of the teachings that are suppose to be taught by our schools. A 7 year old in the Philippines knows more about English and speaks it better than most college entry students! They do not play the anti-freedom game there and do not need to because their schools are NOT controlled by Liberal fools!

Did you ever hear about any school shooting in the schools in the Philippines? NO! Liberals should stop blaming objects or others for their own ignorance!

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
