In Colorado, a student activist group called "Student Worker" has colorfully protested statewide testing with videos, posters, and imitation prison-inmate identification badges. For the purpose of rating Colorado schools, students who opt out are lumped in the "unsatisfactory" category, dragging down their school's score.
