Colorado Group Plans for Opt-Out Billboards

Susan Notes:

September 12, 2014-- YOU can help a group of Colorado activists light a torch against Common Core testing.

If you are outraged by the tyranny of high
stakes standardized testing, please think about
donating to the Coalition for Better Education
for their annual billboard campaign. They are
raising money to erect billboards to inform
parents of their right to exempt their
children from this outrage.

Contribute to the Opt Out of PARRC billboard campaign

The Coalition for Better Education is gearing up for its annual campaign to inform parents of their right to opt their children out of the abusive state standardized tests.

The Coalition has sample opt out letters in English and Spanish for parents to use.

Every year the group puts up billboards to urge parents to opt out. Here is a sample.

Here is another one.

Every year the basic billboard message is the same: Opt out. The details change--dictated by the state test. Bureaucrats change the name of the test but its damage to children remains the same. This year the billboards will be in opposition to the Common Core test PARRC

The billboards will go up in January-- just before testing season. Activists from across the country are called on to donate to this grassroots campaign made possible by small donations. Just $5 makes YOU part of this important resistance. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the US Department of Education have the money. We have the power to shout "NO!"--when we are willing to use it.

Please help this group extend its campaign to inform parents of their right to shout "No!"

Send your donation to:

The Coalition for Better Education, Inc.

Do it!
