Two forums are taking place this week providing information to parents on NY State’s standardized testing. They are sponsored by OptOut NYC, an organization critical of the tests, and will emphasize the politics of testing and explore why some parents choose to opt their children out of these tests.
Please note that the presenters are not intending to provide a “balanced” panel representing the pros and cons – though any such discussion would be welcome from attendees.
Both forums take place at the Brooklyn Public Library, Main Branch.
The first is tonight (Wednesday, Jan 6th) from 6:30-8:30 pm.
The second is this coming Saturday, Jan. 9th, from 1-3 pm.
Please see the flyer below for details.
