Teachers Against the Tests

Teachers, Parents and Students fight for a quality education in New York State.

Public school teachers, parents and students from across New York State rallied in Albany June 8 calling for an end to over-reliance on standardized testing and the harvesting of student data by corporate interests. The rally came on the heels of anti-testing protests that popped up in cities across the country this spring. A contingent of PSC members attended the event. They noted that initiatives like Pathways, which water down curriculum in public higher education, are backed by many of the same wealthy interests that have pushed a corporate “reform” agenda in K-12 schools.
