MCA testing is not required in order to graduate
Did you know that you don’t have to take the MCA?
You don’t need to take MCA’s anymore! According to Supreme Court cases like, Meyer vs Nebraska say that, “In Meyer, the Supreme Court held that the right of parents to raise their children free from unreasonable state interference’s is one of the unwritten “liberties” protected by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. (262 U.S. 399)”
You will just need your parent or guardian to send in an email to the principle saying that you won’t be taking the test. Just follow the format on this article, on page 3.
Some reasons for not taking the MCA include:
Fosters test driven education that is not meeting the individual/intellectual needs of students.
Fosters coercion over cooperation with regards to federal funding for public education.
Promotes a culture of lying, cheating, and exploitation within the school community.
