With the contested testing set to begin Wednesday, Hall County Schools Superintendent Will Schofield further clarified how parents may refuse the Georgia Milestones exam for their children at Monday night’s school board meeting at Flowery Branch High School. A number of parents in Hall County have expressed their opposition to the Georgia State Milestones Assessment, a comprehensive exam for students in grades three through 12. The test must be presented to every child, but some parents do not wish for their students to take it.
