PA students in grades 3-8 will soon be required to take the PSSA tests to determine if the teacher has done a good job of “teaching to the test.” These tests are not achievement tests to determine what level of achievement your child has attained. However, there is a little known secret that parents can opt their child out of these tests!
Redefining marriage leads to loss of religious freedom!
Reverend Raphael Cruz, father of Senator Ted Cruz, recently said, “We need to realize that the attack on marriage is more than just an attack on marriage, it actually goes to the heart of religious freedom.
It is well known that the only reason available for parents to opt their children out of the PSSA’s and/or the Keystone exams is if they find that the test(s) are in conflict with their religious beliefs. In order to establish this, the parent has to follow a specified procedure that involves (1) contacting the school administrator; (2) viewing the test; (3) signing a confidentiality agreement; and finally, (4)notifying the district Superintendent that you are opting out your child because of religious beliefs.
AFA of PA encourages Christians, through education, to become involved in pro-family issues in their community, state and the nation. This is some of what has been going on in the Commonwealth and the nation.
