Suggesting Parents Opt Out of Evaluation is Wrong

A recent post at publishes an expert’s suggestion that a parent refuse “student evaluation” for special education.

I commented on the article but the comment was rejected.

This article provides arguments against rejecting evaluation and gives no credence to the education professionals’ suggestions that a child’s condition be evaluated.

I stated in my comment that state-wide testing and evaluation is an ongoing practice in schools and that the child is being regularly evaluated on their skills and career-readiness.

Early intervention could elevate the trajectory of a child’s education and their abilities to cope with the demands of adulthood.

I am interested in comments.
