A standard line amongst opt out activists is that you simply can’t do it in high school. But more and more Texas parents are proving that the opposite is true. More and more Texas kids are finishing their Texas high schools without having taken some or all of the EOCS. I go a step further. I hold that, for a committed opt out parent, if you can put aside sentimentality and about $2.50 a week, you, and not the school, hold all the power.
