NYC DOE’s TEST-OBSESSED PROMOTION POLICIES LEAVE MANY NYC FAMILIES IN LIMBO AS SCHOOL ENDS

First day of summer is NO VACATION for parents struggling get their
children promoted to next grade

WHAT:   Come meet parents battling the NYC Dept. of Education’s dysfunctional and educationally unsound student promotion policies

WHEN:   4:45 PM on Thursday, June 27th

WHERE:  NYC Department of Education, 52 Chambers Street
Assemble on the Courthouse Steps (In the event of severe rain gathering
will take place across the street, under the scaffolding at 51 Chambers)

Participating parents have children who have not been promoted despite
recommendations from teachers and principals who have determined they
are ready    for the next grade level.  They will also discuss concerns the DOE is arbitrarily forcing thousands of children to attend summer school solely on the basis of partial results from this year’s experimental State exams.
