Dear (Superintendents Name)
I (your name) the parent/guardian of (child’s name) am choosing to exercise my parental rights to “direct the upbringing and education of my child.” (Name of school district) does not have my permission to administer any State or District mandated standardized test to my child (child’s name).Please note Parental Rights are broadly protected by Supreme Court decisions.
Since (name of district) accepted Race to the Top funds administering any state or district standardized testing that measures teacher performance to my child means my child is proving the catalyst of pay which violates the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of 1938, which states that sixteen is the basic minimum age for employment. It also says that when young people work, the work cannot jeopardize their health, well-being, or educational opportunities.
Please be advised if ( Name of District) administers any State or District mandated tests to my child (name of child) the district will be liable for denying me my rights as a parent and I will file a complaint with the civil liberties union and follow through with a law suit.
