Poll: Sound off on school testing
November 17, 2014
With protests over standardized testing making headlines in Colorado, this week's poll question asks if standardized testing has gone too far.
Go to http://www.aspentimes.com, on the left side below the news carousel, to find this week's question and the results of previous polls.
Last week's poll question — "Is there really any debate over whether to vaccinate children?" — brought in 970 votes. The majority of votes — 573, or 59.07 percent, said no, that parents who don't vaccinate are putting public health at risk. Another 213 votes, or 21.96 percent, said not vaccinating undermines decades of scientific advances. Just 97 votes, or 10 percent, said vaccinating is a personal choice, and just 57 votes, or 5.88 percent, said there are harmful chemicals in vaccines that are too dangerous for young children. The remaining 30 votes, or 3.09 percent, weren't sure about the debate.
