Event Details

Our guests will be Monty Neill with Fair Test, Tim Slekar and Shaun Johnson with United Opt Out and Jesse Hagopian, a teacher at Garfield High School where the teachers voted to opt out of administering the MAP test.


We will be hearing from them on what the term "high stakes testing" means and the importance and ramifications of opting out of high stakes testing by students, parents and teachers.

There will be a full hour for questions and discussion after our guests make their presentations.

Teachers in Seattle schools refuse to administer 'specious' standardized tests. Will others follow their lead?

There will be a maximum of 100 guests for this online seminar.
