A school district in South Carolina disciplined at least 12 students who, at the request of their parents, refused to take new standardized ACT tests.

According to local news, some students reportedly felt bullied by the school administration to take the test, which was given last week across the entire state.

The students were removed from their classrooms and asked by the principal to agree to take the test despite initial refusal. When the children again refused, they were sent to the school’s office and received a discipline referral marked “refusal to obey,” according to The Greenville News.

Instead of “opting out,” concerned parents are “refusing” to allow their children to be tested.
