An overwhelming majority of school board candidates endorsed by Long Island Opt Out, a New York group advocating for parents to refuse standardized testing on their children's behalf, won election bids last month, according to local news accounts.

A flier posted on Long Island Opt Out's Facebook page shows that the group endorsed more than 70 candidates in more than 40 districts. Newsday reports that more than 50 of those candidates, including incumbents, won their campaigns.
