Testing forum with Monty Neill on CAN-TV Sunday

From CReATE leaders Diane and Isabel:

DEAR FRIENDS,

Thanks so much for attending the forum on Winning the Testing Battle and giving us thoughtful feedback. We greatly appreciate your interest in receiving information from us.

The forum will be broadcast on CAN TV 21 on Sunday, March 11th at 9 a.m. (and that’s the day we set the clocks forward!). Tell your friends who couldn’t make it to UIC.

Some web resources that might be helpful to you include:

Copies of the CReATE brief on testing, please go to:  www.createchicago.blogspot.com.

United OptOut National – “a movement to end punitive public school testing”  (www.unitedoptout.com)

FAIRTEST:  www.fairtest.org

Forum for Educational Accountability: www.edaccountability.org

Forum for Education and Democracy:  www.forumforeducation.org

We are also attaching a powerful work of research on Turnaround Schools written by Dr. Donald Moore of Designs for Change. (report here)

Finally, the next CReATE forum will be held on April 11th at Roosevelt University.  The topic will be safety and discipline in schools.  We will send you a flyer when we have the details.

Please feel free to contact Isabel Nunez (isabel.nunez@cuchicago.edu) or Diane Horwitz (dhorwit1@depaul.edu) with any questions, comments, ideas.
