PAA members to demonstrate against ALEC

When members of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) descend on Charlotte for their spring summit, Parents Across America will be there to meet them.

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.

More details are available on the MecklenburgACTS website. If you need further information, please contact Pamela Grundy at  PamelaG@parentsacrossamerica.org.
