Day 1 of NY Testing: Hundreds of Thousands Refuse

This week will mark the end of the beginning in the long war to end racist and classist high stakes tests.  Advantage--parents, students, and teachers. 

It does not matter what the Pearson and Microsoft Congressmen in Washington do or don't do with their states privatization version of ESEA.  This testing orgy will end, public schools will be saved and renewed, and it will done by non-violent resistance and civil disobedience.
“From what I’m hearing from other superintendents, it could be at least 300,000 students across the state that opted out,” said William Cala, superintendent of Fairport Central School District near Rochester.
