Our Education Spring Goes National: Report from Fairtest

26 Mar

Join the growing movement and “Say NO!” to the fake education reformers.

Diane Ravitch's blog

Say no to high-stakes testing!

Say no to data mining of your children ,

Say no to corporate reform!

Say no to those who want to monetize our children!

Here is a report from Bob Schaeffer of Fairtest:

Anyone who still believes that the resistance to testing misuse and overuse is confined to a few big cities and “liberal” activists, should click through this week’s news clips. In fact, testing protests are spreading across “deep red” states” such as Alaska, Tennessee, Texas and Utah. And “conservative” commentators are speaking out against standardized exam overkill.
