Join Cynthia Liu of K12 News Network and Peggy Robertson and Morna McDermott of United Opt Out  and Jesse Hagopian, teacher leader from Seattle, to discuss rising unrest over the time and expense of standardized testing and how you can opt your child out of end-of-year and other tests. K12NN is a partner in the Testing Reform and Resistance movement to inform and support families who want their children to experience meaningful diagnostic tests that are teacher-originated, authentic and performance-based to assess children's progress.

Here's to more learning, less testing!
