Our meetings are always open and all are welcome. I can guarantee a lively discussion! Promotion policies will be the focus on the agenda as well as ways we will move forward to plan for next year. School may be out for summer, but our work will continue... Janine Sopp

The stuff flying back and forth on the CTS listserve over the reactions of DOE slugs to the opt-out movement has been more than intense -- with threats to force some parents to send their kids to summer school. The epicenter seems to be in District 6 in Washington Hts.
For those not aware, GEM developed 2 branches: CTS and MORE, both independent now (GEM is currently not functioning as an organization). The MORE July 11 summer series event on high stakes testing will bring elements of both groups together.
In the meantime, MORE is running a study group on high stakes testing and is meeting Saturday at 1PM
We're starting off our next working group meeting with a discussion of the first chapter in Unequal By Design by Wayne Au, followed by developing some common understandings to frame the debate around HST, and planning for the summer series event!
