The results of the poll itself is interesting and shows growing discontent with the testing regime.
See this slide, revealing that 13% of parents opted their children out of standardized tests last year.
Despite lower rates overall than upper-income suburban Moms (their words, not mine) African-America and Hispanic Moms intend to opt their children out in greater numbers next year -- with the number of African-American mothers nearly doubling.
Also, respondents give a variety of reasons for opposing standardized testing, with 49% saying the exams do a poor job capturing their children's true abilities, and 48% say that the exams yield no positive benefits to children taking the exam. Especially interesting is that 53% of African American Moms say their children are subjected to too many tests.
