The superintendent of schools, Jose Banda, ordered administrators to pull students out of classrooms to take the test in the library, but many students refused to take it and turned in letters signed by their parents giving them permission to opt out of the test, teachers reported.
This seems to be a pretty harsh political consequence, the image of forcing students to take tests. I wonder if any images could be taken because the impact of forced academic testing, despite the objections of those charged with students’ direct care, could be quite provocative.
Of course, there are problems with making these kinds of images public. Too bad, that might be powerful.
