    REMINDER


    PUBLIC SCHOOL ACTION ALERT


    PARENTS JOIN GRADUATES in PROTEST as
    TEACHERS COLLEGE HONORS
    MERRYL TISCH &
    HER HIGH-STAKES TESTING AGENDA


    Tisch, Chancellor of the Board of Regents and a driving force behind high-stakes tests in NY state, is to be a speaker and to receive a medal from TC. 

    What:      Protest at Teachers College Convocation

    When:    Tuesday, May 21 8:30-9:30 AM
                    (Drop off your kids at school early & be there by 8:30)

    Where:   St. John the Divine, 112th and Amsterdam
                    Manhattan, NYC

    Directions: Take 1 train to 110th Street

    •              We oppose Tisch's policy of high-stakes testing.
    •              Tisch’s high-stakes tests are destroying our public schools.
    •              Tisch supports charter schools, not public schools.
    •              Tisch should not be honored for hurting our schools!
    •              There are no high-stakes tests in private schools, where her children studied and she taught.

     

    Bring a sign!

    Bring a friend and

    Stand with us!

     

    Please let me know if you can attend. 

    Press coverage starts 8:40/ends 9:30 (as grads go in). Ceremony starts 9:30.
