The principal of a California public high school has reversed a plan to punish juniors who refused to take the state's version of Common Core testing.

Calabasas High School principal C.J. Foss had threatened students opting out of testing by banning them from using the school's parking lot and taking part in class activities during their senior year.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)But Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute says Foss backed down after hearing from PJI and disgruntled parents.

"The problem is she doesn't acknowledge that what she did was wrong and therefore it's still possible it could happen again," he tells OneNewsNow.

Under California law, he says, students are permitted to opt out of the test. If Calabasas ignores the law, PJI is concerned that other principals can ignore  it, too. 

"We cannot allow that to happen," says Dacus.

Seventy-five percent of the juniors at Calabasas opted out of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress test.

It appears that a Georgia school district caved to just about everything an atheist group was demanding. In doing so, says the head of Liberty Counsel, the district didn't do their peers a favor.
