The end of the school year brings end-of-year testing for most Utah students. But a parent group is speaking out against the new SAGE test and a higher-than-usual number of students is opting out of the assessment.

On Wednesday at 12:15 p.m., state associate superintendent Judy Park, Christel Swasey with Utahns Against Common Core and Tribune education reporter Lisa Schencker join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about what this means for teacher evaluations and school progress reports.
