Test opt-out bill passed by Georgia House

Legislation that could make it easier to opt out of standardized state tests was adopted by the Georgia House of Representatives Friday.

House Bill 425 clarifies that parents can opt their children out of school testing without penalty. It also says they can choose to have their children take tests with paper and pencil rather than on a computer. The bill by Rep. Joyce Chandler, R-Grayson, passed 151-18.
