Arizona House Democrats wanted to add an amendment to SB1047 to ensure that all schools, not just public schools, have to test students and show the students' scores for standardized testing.
When parents look at how a school is doing, private schools need to be playing by the same rules. The Republican response is that school choice means that private and charter schools should not be regulated because that takes away choice. Kids deserve to have standards no matter what school they attend. I believe that every child deserves to have an education that meets minimum requirements.
