Village Voice Reports on MORE Sunday Event

Whatever the ultimate size of the boycott this year, disquiet about standardized testing will remain a live political issue. MORE, the "social justice caucus" of the United Federation of Teachers, organized Sunday's meeting and is running Julie Cavanagh as the underdog candidate .... as president of the nation's largest teachers' union. Cavanagh, a special education teacher in Red Hook and the charismatic and media-friendly director of the documentary The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman, has clearly identified standardized testing as an issue that unites parents and teachers. "The testing boycott movement is happening!" she told the audience. "The movement of social justice to take back our communities is happening! Parents and teachers are leading the way, and unions better get behind them." --- Village Voice
