As our friends at the Naples Daily News report, the Lee County school district on Wednesday became the first in the state to opt out of all state-mandated testing.
Hundreds of opt-out advocates showed up at the district headquarters to watch the 3-2 vote against the new high-stakes assessment.
The story notes that Lee schools superintendent Nancy Graham expressed "grave" concerns about the decision. Graham also told reporters the district would still be teaching the Florida Standards, education benchmarks based on the Common Core State Standards.
It's not yet clear what consequences -- if any -- the district will suffer. Stay tuned.
