Live Chat on Standardized Testing and Ed Reform

Today, May 17th at 5 PM, I invite you to join me on a live chat on standardized testing hosted by The Nation. Reporter Dana Goldstein, an Educators 4 Excellence member, Tara Brancato, and an International Baccalaureate teacher from a high school in the Bronx will be on the panel. This should be an interesting conversation.

As our readers know, Will and I are skeptical of the value of the value-added approach to education reform, and we are critical of the effect of standardized testing on schools.

I look forward to learning from other perspectives on these issues and advocating for a renewed focus on positive, supportive contexts and rich, sequential content in schools.

See you online!
