Cambridgeshire county councillors have rejected a proposal that would have barred school governors from reappointment if they supported withholding test results from the government, reports BBC Cambridgeshire.
The move was proposed by Conservative group leader John Horrell but rejected at a full county council meeting.
Between 50 and 60 primary schools in Cambridgeshire are intending to keep back the results of tests for 11 year olds in protest at the league table system.
Mr Horrell said he regretted the council decision and the governors' stand.
He commented: 'I think they're wrong if they do that. I know the unions have a concern and are in dispute with the government, but I believe governors - the that ones we appoint - should uphold the law.
'They have certainly been advised by the education officer that they should not take active positions of opposing those matters'.
