TODAY MORE Summer Series 4-7pm
We hope you are as excited as we are for the kick off of our 2nd annual summer series at Local 138 on Ludlow st. Lower East Side, NYC. Today's forum will feature MORE members who are public school educators and parents discussing the opposition to high stakes testing, how it leads to the school to prison pipeline, and how we all can work together to have the schools our children deserve.
Check out this relevant graphic from our brothers/sisters of Chicago Teachers Union http://www.ctunet.com/

The happy hour specials are great and it's a fantastic chance to educate, strategize, and of course, socialize!
