From Seattle to Chicago: The Case Against High Stakes Standardized Testing with Jesse Hagopian and Karen Lewis See More

With Jesse Hagopian, teacher at Garfield High School
in Seattle and leader of MAP test boycott
and Karen Lewis, Chicago Teachers Union president

The well-publicized efforts of teachers, parents and students in Seattle in boycotting the MAP test there has brought the issue of the overuse and misuse of high stakes standardized testing to the national stage.

Join teachers, parents and students to understand the role high stakes testing is playing in undermining great teaching and learning in our schools.

Test scores are a key component of school rankings and closings, student tracking and promotion, principal evaluations, teacher evaluations, and all too often result in a limited and narrow curriculum in our classrooms. Tests unfairly discriminate against schools with low income students, students of color and students with disabilities.

We will discuss the many options for becoming involved in the growing movement against excessive standardized testing in our schools.
