The guest for PAA’s next book club session in our Poverty, Race and Education series is the wonderful Jesse Hagopian, Seattle teacher and editor of “More Than a Score: The New Uprising Against High-Stakes Testing.”

To prepare for this session, “Let’s Get Real about Leveling the Playing Field,” you can:

  • buy and read Jesse’s book
  • watch his terrific TedX Talk on alternatives to standardized testing, and/or
  • read some of his articles here or here, for example.

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.

This webinar discussion will take place on Zoom, a free program that you will have to download prior to the session (it’s fast and easy). Details are below:
