More than 400 educators, citizens, bloggers, activists and parents met in Austin, Texas for the first Annual Network for Public Education Conference. The press release just doesn't seem to be getting much press. Diane Ravitch was on the Ed Show last night on MSNBC. I suppose that's a start but the real story, Ed, is the call for investigative Congressional hearings on how high stake standardized testing has become the WMD in the takeover of public schools by for profit corporations.
Pick up the phone and call your representatives and let them know that you've had enough of this garbage and you would like to know why the private schools where their children go to school do not focus on high stakes standardized testing.
