|Change the Stakes was one of principal organizers of Pearson Protest|
From GEM parent activist Janine Sopp:
You may not know about Change the Stakes, a committee of GEM working to end the devastating use of high stakes testing. We have been busy for almost a year now and have felt as though we are part of the movement that is shifting the dialog, even if in small ways, around issues of testing. We are certainly part of a national movement.
Please visit our website, sign our petition, "Like" us on Facebook and join our open forum.
If you support a parent's right to opt out of testing, please sign and share this link to the petition demanding a non punitive opt out program in NY:
