Gallup Poll Shows Parents Rejecting Standardized Testing

The latest Gallup poll — sponsored in part by Phi Delta Kappa — shows that parents of students feel that there is too much emphasis on standardized testing and that almost half would choose to "opt out" of the testing for their child.
Parents are joined by public school teachers who expressed overwhelming dissatisfaction with standardized testing of the Common Core in an earlier Gallup poll.
