Meet with parents who are saying ‘No’ to high stakes testing in NYC

Meet with NYC Parents Who Are Saying NO! (Please Share Widely with your friends, PTAs, SLTs, Parent Lists, teachers)

As children and teachers enter the spring “testing season,” parents must decide if we will continue to allow our children to support high-stakes testing. There are many ways to resist the tests and demand social justice for all public school students.

Meet with others who choose to refuse and are organizing others to do the same.

• Learn what is at stake, ways you can resist and how.
• Help educate your school community, organize, mobilize and possibly opt out.
• Even if you feel like a lone voice, you are not alone!
• It is time for parents to protect their children and resist by saying NO!

5:30 to 7:30pm

365 Fifth Ave, Rm 5409
