Members and supporters of PAA affiliate MecklenburgACTS will spend Friday, May 11, calling attention to the destructive education legislation that ALEC has promoted, legislation that increases high-stakes testing, promotes school vouchers and online charter schools and undercuts the teaching profession.
Demonstrators will also be promoting the National Resolution on High-Stakes Testing, which calls on state and federal officials to drop high-stakes testing mandates.
Activities will include “Pencils Down: High-Stakes Testing Drill” and guest appearances by the pineapple and the hare from Pearson’s now-infamous test item. If you live in the area stop by!
When: Friday, May 11, at various times between 10 a.m.-6:30 p.m.
Where: Westin Hotel, 601 S. College St.
