DESE legal opinion on state mandated testing

which you can find here

DESE says covered by truancy laws
but what if student is in school?
MA Leg is explicit when opt out is to be given to parents, for example sex education
because that does not exist in MCAS
O'Connell: doesn't seem to have a lot of choice
Novick: doesn't seem to align with case law surrounding education rights, which general default to parents and students, rather than to the state
refer to MASC and City Solicitor for legal opinion
