Public school educators have knowledge and expertise that should be welcomed into policy debates, says Deb McCarthy, and that means the teaching profession benefits from the opt-out movement.

There is a frightening new sentiment in the education world these days that it is OK for students to pick and choose what they participate in, Marika Heughins argues.

If the opt-out movement can shed light and focus attention on the injustices public schools face, Bill Ivey says, then he is 100 percent in support of it.

Opting out is a passive response that hopes to incite change through causing inconvenience, rather than driving meaningful reform, Ken Mattingly writes.
