All Students (ahem, properly filled-in scantrons) Matter

Wednesday, Apr 13: First We Walked Out, Now We Opt Out

Ah, standardized testing. Five days of the school year when students don't learn and teachers don't teach. Free pencils and goldfish crackers can only effectively bribe teenagers for so long. But who's to say that taking anxiety-inducing timed tests isn't a fantastic way to hold students and educators to fair standards?

If you have something to say about standardized testing (or want to hear what others have to say about it) grab a seat at the Town Hall meeting on Wednesday, April 13, at the African American Performing Arts Center. There will be a panel, Q&A and breakout groups, along with special guest Janelle Astorga, co-leader of Albuquerque High School PARCC walkouts. African American Performing Arts Center, Expo NM • Wed Apr 13 • 6-8pm • FREE • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
