What is PARCC?

PARCC is the acronym applied to the “evaluation and data collection” infrastructure necessary to verify “compliance” with Common Core.  The new mandatory iPad leasing program is directly linked to PARCC.

The administration advertises the changes as “21st century learning”,.  What the administration is not telling parents is what happens under the surface with the data going into the iPads.  It’s important for parents to understand the link between Common Core & Data Collection.

Many states and Massachusetts school districts are working toward opting out of Common Core/PARCC.  Parents within districts that are still involved are learning they can individually opt out of the PARCC testing program.
