Students, Do not take your state tests!

Susan Notes:

Here is a short film aimed at students. The BartlebyProject 2010 urges students to write only one thing on their tests: "I prefer not to take your test."

8 words.

That's it.

Students can sign on at BartlebyProject 2010. Apparently, this project is initiated by John Taylor Gatto. You can read his full statement here.
