1,400 Students Skip Standardized Tests

April 1, 2009

About 1,400 students dodged standardized exams administered nationwide yesterday, repeating what led to a dismissal of 12 school teachers late last year.

Despite warnings by education authorities to punish teachers who do not cooperate with the testing, members of a progressive teachers’ union gave the students a choice not to take the exams.

The Korean Teachers and Education Workers’ Union revealed the names of 122 teachers who sent letters to parents asking them if they wanted their children to take the standardized tests.
