Parents Opting Out
As a mother, I want to opt my child out of National Standards testing. I am not the only one.
I also intend want to refuse to have any data on my child entered into the PaCT system where it will be held by government and stored in the cloud. Given the government’s record on IT systems, I have no faith it would be safe. I also have no faith it would not be shared with agencies I disapprove of.
So, experts, where do parents stand legally on those two issues?
I would not want to put my child’s teacher in a difficult position, nor the school, so need to know exactly what my rights are.
If you can help or advise me, please comment below.
