Notice of appeal filed with the FL Supreme Court. News Service of Florida has this story on the opt out movement.
The parents last week took the first step in asking the Supreme Court to overturn a decision by the 1st District Court of Appeal in a case related to what is known as the “opt out” movement.
Parents who brought the case against the Department of Education and several school boards told their third-grade students to put their names on a standardized test, then refuse to answer questions.
When the students were barred from moving to fourth grade under state law, the parents sued, saying they wanted their children to be evaluated using a portfolio allowed in the case of “good cause exemptions.”
