Thanks, for replying, Marge. I know many parents who are trying to figure out how to opt out without the teachers/schools suffering the penalties. I didn't opt my sons out last year and saw them become completely demoralized and full of anxiety the closer we got to testing season. The teachers were clearly anxious, too--the pressure is crazy. And, here in Los Angeles there are now district assessments that I've seen pretty much become a student's entire grade on a the report card.
