While California politicians spar with the feds over testing the progress of every child toward meeting grade level academic standards, Californians overwhelmingly believe parents should see the results of state assessments.  A recent poll, conducted by Goodwin Simon Strategic Research, found that 95% of California voters want parents to be able to see the state academic test results for their child.

Yet if a proposed ESEA testing waiver is approved for California, state bureaucrats in Sacramento and the test vendor employees would be the only people to see test results. If approved, California’s waiver request would deny parents, teachers, principals and even district superintendents data on the results from state assessments this year and at least the next two school years after that.
