The Day the Teachers Said No

The Day the Teachers Said No.

 

If you want to understand why the entire teaching staff of Garfield High School is boycotting the MAP test, watch this excellent video.

The only way to stop the destruction now descending on American education is to stand together–like the Garfield teachers–and say no.

No to pointless testing.

No to the misuse of testing.

No to the collection of students’ personal data for marketing stuff to them.

No to the closing of community public schools.

No to the attacks on teachers, their salaries, their benefits, and their academic freedom.

Say no to profiteering on our kids and schools.

Say yes to what is right for students, educators, and communities.

Say it together.

In unity, there is strength.
