FARMINGTON, N.M. (KRQE) – A teacher in Farmington who distributed opt-out forms for the controversial PARCC exam will not have her contract renewed.
According to the Farmington Daily Times Sharon Yocum, who teaches fifth grade at Esperanza Elementary, was placed on leave in February for giving her students the forms.
Yocum says the district has now informed her she isn’t compatible with their needs for a teacher.
The district told the newspaper they couldn’t comment.
The PARCC test has been controversial, sparking protests and walk-outs at schools all over the state. Many people are mad the tests are used in teacher evaluations, others are mad about their design.
