Long Island students opt out of Common Core state exam
At least 46.5 percent of the students eligible to take Common Core state math tests this week opted out, according to figures supplied by most of Long Island's school districts. Here are the details, along with figures on students who opted out of last week's English tests. Where the table is blank, that district did not respond to our request for information or refused to give figures. The Rockville Centre eligible student figure for English is based on a Newsday calculation. The map either gives an overall opt-out percentage or the percentage for either math or English, as noted.
