Exposé on Standardized Testing:

What officials and corporations don’t want you to know

 

  • Hear directly from students about what years of testing looks and feels like from the inside
  • Hear students describe how the onslaught of testing has forced art, music, gym, and recess out of the school day
  • Hear teachers describe how testing violates trust between teachers and students and prevents deep relationship-building
  • Hear school counselors and nurses describe the emotional and physical impact testing has on students
  • Hear parents describe how testing has taken the joy out of their children’s school experience
  • Learn exactly how much money and time is spent on testing annually in our schools
  • Answer sample PSSA and Keystone test questions
  • Hear how parents, teachers, and students are opting out of high stakes testing in Philly and across the country
