How is the dramatic expansion of high-stakes-testing affecting our schools? What is the impact on our children and their learning?
Come be a part of the conversation at the only public screening in Pittsburgh of the new film, "Standardized: Lies, Money, & Civil Rights (How Testing is Ruining Public Education)"
Please join us for a discussion as we try to think outside the bubble!
Brought to you by the volunteer parents, students, teachers, and community members in the education justice movement.
-- “For decades, standardized testing has been a part of public education. Within the last ten years, however, the testing has taken on a more important, and possibly more damaging, role. Test scores, mistakenly viewed as effective assessments of student ability and teacher/school effectiveness, are anything but. This film sheds light on the invalid nature of these tests, the terrible consequences of high-stakes testing, and the big money that's involved.”
