Last week, students and parents in New Paltz and Highland protested what they see as excessive standardized testing under the Common Core standards by refusing to take state reading exams. According to New Paltz Superintendent Maria Rice, on April 1 — the first day of testing — 19.8 percent of students at Lenape Elementary School refused the English language arts test. At New Paltz Middle School, 24 percent of students sat out the test too.
