Time: Nov 20, 2016 7:00 PM Eastern Time, 4 PM Pacific Time
The guest for Parents Across America’s (PAA) next book club session in our Poverty, Race and Education series is Jesse Hagopian, Seattle teacher and editor of “More Than a Score: The New Uprising Against High-Stakes Testing.”
To prepare for this session titled “Let’s Get Real about Leveling the Playing Field,” you can:
- Buy and read Jesse’s book
- Watch his TedX Talk on alternatives to standardized testing, and/or
- Read some of his articles here or here, for examples.
Jesse reframes education in a way that supports all students and addresses the inherent racism in so much of current school policy and practice, including standardized testing.
