For decades, standardized testing has been a part of public education. Within the last ten years, however, the testing has taken on a more important, and possibly more damaging, role. Test scores, mistakenly viewed as effective assessments of student ability and teacher/school effectiveness, are anything but. STANDARDIZED sheds light on the invalid nature of these tests, the terrible consequences of high-stakes testing, and the big money that’s involved.

After the screening, there will be time for discussion. A representative from Parents Across America will be on hand to explain how you can opt your child out of high stakes testing.

This event is brought to you by The Typist Union, Local #001.

The Typist Union’s mission is to encourage, engage, and power-up activists, trouble makers, and dreamers, through solidarity and creativity.
