Solidarity with Change the Stakes and Time Out From Testing

April 26, 2013 — 1 Comment

STATEMENT FROM THE MOVEMENT OF RANK AND FILE EDUCATORS IN SOLIDARITY WITH CHANGE THE STAKES & TIME OUT FROM TESTING
We, the Movement of Rank and File Educators (The Social Justice Caucus of the United Federation of Teachers) stand in solidarity with the parents, students and community members of Change The Stakes and Time Out From Testing. We are united in the fight against the rampant misuse of standardized testing that is destroying the education of our students.  The mounting testing regime that is being forced into the schools must be stopped. We, the educators, teachers, and support staff of the New York City’s  public schools  strive to provide authentic teaching, learning, and assessment. Our students are more than test scores and profits!

Please Join CTS and TOFT at a rally today at 4:00pm-5:30pm in front of NYC Department of Education’s Headquarters (Tweed) 52 Chambers St NYC

    It was fantastic to see so many MORE teachers in MORE t-shirts at the rally. This unifying of parents and teachers with students is the answer to shifting the conversation and action to those who have skin in the game and whose lives are most effected by bad policies. Your voices, chants and uplifting energy helped raise the dark cloud over Tweed. Let’s keep this party going!
