Parents in Pittsburgh are Opting Out

Listen to great reporting from Chalkface Radio's interview on Saturday with Tim Slekar, United Opt Out and  the radical suburban soccer moms in PA who are opting out of testing to protect the best interests of their children.

Leafy suburban neighborhoods are the new battlefront against the barrage of high stakes tests, schools closings, for profit charter schools and privatization. Haven't these corporate ed deformers ever heard of NIMBY (not in my backyard).
