Great WBEZ story on parents resisting testing in Chicago

Reporter Becky Vevea put together a great story about Chicago parents anger over the excessive testing that’s going on in our schools these days. The written report is here but please take the time to listen to the audio, which is longer but less than 5 minutes total and includes yours truly’s dulcet tones.

The parent pressure isn’t letting up, either. Raise Your Hand is holding a testing forum this Thursday at 7 pm at Holstein Park, 2200 N Oakley. Details here.
