RefuseNY brings together efforts from around the state into one location to keep parents, educators, and concerned citizens aware
of policies having
a negative impact on the education of our children.
Refusing these tests is not an anti-testing movement. It is a statement against the increased and inappropriate use of testing currently being implemented.
This is not about testing. It's about control and power. Testing is being misused to disrupt education in order to create fear and uncertainty where we once had stability.

The Commissioner and Regents are appointed positions. Refusing the tests is our only effective way to make a statement. It is our vote. To refuse is to protect.
Support neighborhood schools by having your child refuse the tests this spring.
