Who’s Boycotting State Tests?

The battle over state tests is reflected in hard numbers published by Chalkbeat. Turns out, while progressive schools traditionally have high state exam boycott rates, the article reports there are non-test-takers showing up in neighborhood schools in the Bronx and Brooklyn, too.

According to 2017-18 data, 4.4% of the students across the city opted out and statewide the rate of those who chose not to be tested was at 18%.

But the numbers don’t seem to indicate a geographic consistency. For example, two schools in Brooklyn just five minutes apart had a range of results: no boycotts at one school compared with a 96% rate at the other.

Overall, 108 schools citywide had no students sit out the exams.

Note: there’s no penalty for schools that do have high boycott rates.

The article has a handy database where you can search drop out rates for each school.
