THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Superintendents at Potsdam, Canton and Norwood-Norfolk schools say they won’t stop parents who want to keep their third through eighth grade children from taking Common Core assessment tests in April and May. The state Education Department said its policy is that students must take the tests. However, the New York State United Teachers challenged that, saying parents have an innate right to see after their children’s best interests.
Do you support St. Lawrence County parents having the choice to keep their children from taking the assessment tests?
Results will be posted Monday, March 30.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
Do you think Border Patrol roadblocks in St. Lawrence County that are miles away from the border are necessary and effective?
