The House has killed a bill to allow parents to opt out of certain standardized tests.
As originally introduced in the House, it would have allowed an opt-out of the ACT, WorkKeys or other tests. The Senate amended it so the ACT, WorkKeys and other tests required for graduation would have been excluded from that.
It was sent to a conference committee.
"This bill strikes a workable balance between parental rights and local school district protections," said Rep. Dennis Johnson (R-Devils Lake), who served on the conference committee.
