Juan Gonzalez Moderates: Brian Jones, Pedro Noguera, Shael Polakow-Suransky, Diana Zavala: Dec. 10, 6PM

Change the Stakes Sponsors: High Stakes Testing: Helping or Hurting Education?

You know that Change the Stakes, which began life as the testing committee of GEM, is my favorite of all the groups I currently work with, partly because of how productive the people involved in it are.

 This should be one exciting event. MORE's Brian Jones and Diane Zavala (Reps CTS here) facing off with Noguera and Shael.

Oh, the conflict: A hearing over Eva invasion at Washington Irving HS at the same time though there is a rally at WI at 4:30. So I may make it to that first. But how could I miss filming Eva's video crew. To go or not to go, that is the question.

What: Panel discussion and community forum on the impact of high stakes testing on curriculum, instruction, and learning
When: Monday, December 10th, 6:00 - 8:30 PM (see flyer for details)

Where: The Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center 3940 BROADWAY @ 165 STREET (A/C/1 trains to 168th Street station)

Panelists: Brian Jones, Dr. Pedro Noguera, Senior Deputy Chancellor Shael Polakow-Suranski, Diana Zavala

Sponsored by: Change the Stakes, The Shabazz Center, The Harlem/Washington Heights Education Film Screening & Discussion Series (Total Equity Now, Community League of the Heights, and the A.M.E. Zion Church on the Hill), and the Office of Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez

Please RSVP via email to changethestakes@gmail.com or by joining the Facebook event

** Spanish language translation will be available **

Please join us on Monday for an exciting discussion and share the info with others. Thanks, and have a wonderful weekend!
