he NY State Education Department has proposed regulations that would punish schools with high opt out rates by giving them poor evaluations, and that could force these schools to use Title I funds to persuade parents to make their children take the state exams.  These regs would also allow the Commissioner to unilaterally close any school with high opt out rates and/or convert it to a charter school. Please send a message to NYSED today, urging them to delete these provisions of the regulations!
