SUPPORT HB603 : Give Parents the RIGHT to Remove Their Child From Smarter Balanced


This bill gives parents the right to remove their child from taking the state annual assessment. Thus, reinforcing parental rights as to their control of what their children have access to. The amendment removes part of the bill that was passed earlier this session in HB 206. Other states are allowing parents to exempt their children from testing without any loss in federal funds. The number of students not taking the test should not statistically jeopardize any comparison with other schools.

The picture above gives you information on how the NH House Education Committee members voted on HB603.

You can find your State Representative here.  Send them an e-mail and ask them to SUPPORT HB603.

RALLY for PARENTAL RIGHTS in New Hampshire


Let’s meet in the LOBBY of the Legislative Office Building at 9:00 AM on Thursday, March 5th, 2015.

NH Commissioner of Education Virginia Barry is using Technical Advisories to intimidate parents. Barry believes her directives SUPERSEDE a parent’s fundamental RIGHT to direct the education of his child.

House Education Committee votes on House Bill 603, protecting a parent’s right to REFUSE to allow their child take the Smarter Balanced Assessments without penalty, at 9:45 AM March 5, 2015 in the Legislative Office Building, Room 207.

Please email the House Education Committee: HouseEducationCommittee@leg.state.nh.us
Tell them to PASS HB 603 to respect parents right to REFUSE.

Why should parents be forced to allow their children take an assessment that is SHROUDED in SECRECY? Parents should be able to REVIEW and INSPECT copies of previous assessments from 2013 or 2014. Yet parents are not allowed to do so.

Many are concerned about the dispositional questions, measuring student values, attitudes and beliefs, that are on the Smarter Balanced Assessments.

Others have PRIVACY concerns with the U.S. Department of Education receiving “student level” information from these assessments.

Regardless of the reason, parents have the RIGHT to REFUSE!
