We don’t need no education!

Kids are being advised not to take part in New York’s  standardised tests – by a highly-paid schools official.

The New York Post ridicules Lisa Nielsen, 44, a high-ranking city Department of Education official recently promoted to the newly created, six-figure position of “director of digital literacy and citizenship.”

In her spare time, Nielsen – dubbed “The Class Clown” by the Post – is an administrator of the Facebook group Opt Out of State Standardized Tests — New York, which promotes boycotting the very same standardized tests her agency administers.

“More and more parents are speaking out and standing up for their parental rights by opting their children out of standardised tests,” she wrote last week on her blog, “The Innovative Educator: Way Out of the Box!”
