The governor’s new education budget will remove nearly all control of education from the hands of parents, teachers, and principals and put it in the hands of the state, resulting in “cookie cutter” schools whose teachers will be judged almost entirely on high stakes testing and outside metrics and evaluation, forcing them to “teach to the test.” Unless we do something about it NOW. The plan goes up for a vote BEFORE April 1.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Please see the attached documents for more information and appeals from Lisa and the teachers of PS3. The Vote is April 1st, so let’s be heard as often and as loud as possible!
