Hundreds of South High students opt out of state tests


Isabel Rousmaniere cannot remember the last time she took a state-mandated standardized exam, and she is still in high school.

Rousmaniere, a senior at South High school in Minneapolis, is one of hundreds of students at the school who refuse to take the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments in math, reading and science, which wrap up in May.

“I am very done with standardized testing,” she said recently. “This afternoon, someone handed me a form and said you could opt out of the science MCA. I didn’t even know I still had to take that.”
