Press Release: Colorado Springs Parent Launches Campaign for Parent Rights to Guide Children’s Education

Nina  Bishop is asking parents  across the country to join her in  seeking redress from schools that bully children when parents opt them out of oppressive state testing.  Drawing on her own experience of the difficulties encountered when opting children out of the CSAP, a Colorado state test  instituted in compliance with the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation, Bishop seeks protection under the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment of the U. S. Constitution.
